Awards

The annual EUPRIO Awards provide an opportunity for our members to demonstrate their professional excellence and originality.

Every year we all get involved in projects at our universities that make a real difference. These might be centred on the way you handle the pandemic, student or staff communications, public engagement or perhaps media relations. Even more, all of them represent an acknowledgement that universities need to communicate effectively with all their key audiences.

Therefore, the Awards are a chance to showcase these projects, share best practice and receive recognition from our peers for a job well done.

Furthermore, the judging and presentations take place at EUPRIO’s annual conference. Consequently, this is an ideal opportunity to highlight what makes your university communications practice distinctive.

Finally, the selection of the winning project, together with the second and third placed ones, takes into account the votes of conference delegates and a jury made up of members of the EUPRIO Steering Committee.

EUPRIO invites one person representing the winning university to attend next year's conference - which will include an opportunity to present a workshop/lecture if they wish - with all travel and accommodation expenses covered. The second and third-placed universities will receive a trophy and a certificate.

Ludo Koks, chair of the EUPRIO Awards Jury, said:

“Both the audience and the jury unanimously decided that the first prize was for the University of Trento for it’s campaign #Itendshere. It turned out to be a very effective and successful method to raise awareness about discrimination based on gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion and other grounds, and to promote the role of the University Confidential Counsellor. Well done, Trento!”
