The Fulcrum Awards 2018 now has a refreshed new look with updated categories.
The Fulcrum Awards 2018 powered by the Promise Foundation and PRmoment.in is accepting entries for the third edition of the awards programme. This year we reinvigorate the look of Fulcrum with the remodelled trophy, a re-designed logo, improved web interface and an entire new category, in addition to the existing ones. The awards this year will have over 50 sub categories and are open to individuals and teams from both consultancies and organisations for work done during the period April 2017 to March 2018. The awards night will be held on September 29th in Hyderabad.
Ensuring transparency and stringent process review, the awards continues its partnership with a Big Four firm. The jury consists of 20 senior Public Relations practitioners from various organisations. To ensure fair play, the jury member organisations will not participate in the awards.
The awards this year have four categories further divided into over 50 sub categories with an objective to recognise both individual and team contribution.
