We are celebrating our first hybrid 2021 Edward L. Bernays Mark of Excellence Awards!

Bronze and Silver Award winners will be revealed virtually again this year, however we are excited to announce tickets are on sale for our in-person Bernays Awards Mixer on the rooftop of the San Diego Natural History Museum! During a short ceremony, we’ll announce this year’s Bronze and Silver Best of Show and Special Award winners who have made significant contributions to the public relations profession in San Diego and Imperial Counties and emerged from a challenging year – bolder, brighter, better.
