PRCA launches new 50th anniversary initiative to celebrate the pioneers that shaped our industry

To coincide with its 50th year anniversary, The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) has today announced the launch of a new initiative to help recognise and celebrate the practitioners who have shaped, changed, and redefined the PR and communications industry.

Launched as part of year-long campaign to celebrate 50 years of the PRCA, ‘PR Pioneers 50’ will highlight the actions and achievements of 50 ground breaking practitioners – living or dead – who, over the last 50 years, actively drove PR and communications forward. The PRCA is calling on the industry to nominate the pioneers that they want to see recognised.

Francis Ingham MPRCA, Director General, PRCA, said: “On this, the PRCA’s 50th year, it is important that we recognise the people that have shaped this successful industry into the one that it is today: creative, multi-platform, ethical, professional, and results-focused. This initiative stands to celebrate those special few, and recognise the leaders who have positively shaped modern communications.”

The PR Pioneers 50 list will be announced in July.

To nominate someone for PR Pioneers 50, please contact Matt Cartmell MPRCA at with up to 50 words on who you are nominating, and why they deserve to be included in the list. They must have been practicing PR and communications between 1969 and today.

The following Golden Anniversary sponsors support the PRCA’s 50th Anniversary activities: The Communications Directors Forum, Kantar, LexisNexis, Ogilvy, Paprika, Porter Novelli, and Vuelio. To find out more and to join the Golden Anniversary Sponsors, click here:
