How to Enter

Entries will open in July 2014

PRIA will invite its members to submit entries detailing campaigns that have been executed and evaluated in the 18 months up to July 2014. With the exception of the In-house Team category, the Golden Target Awards recognise the achievements of an individual entrant, the person who created and managed the campaign. Team members and clients can be nominated to receive certificates in the event of success at state or national level.

Golden Target Award entries are judged by a panel of leaders in the profession and industry sector representatives. Following on from the success in 2013, coordinators and judges are being identified and thanked again in 2014.

Entry process and closing dates
Entries open 1 July 2014 and must be submitted by 5.00 pm AEST Wednesday 31 July 2014. Entrants will receive an email acknowledgement following receipt of an entry, and any queries regarding an entry can be directed to PRIA at
