Skyline Awards

About Skyline Awards

PRSA Chicago’s Skyline Awards program is an annual competition that recognizes projects and programs demonstrating excellence in the communications profession. The awards competition is open to all public relations and communications practitioners who reside in the Greater Chicagoland area. A significant portion of the work in all entries will need to be implemented between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 of the prior year. The 2019 entry submission period is now closed.

The Skyline Awards program is mirrored after the PRSA National Silver and Bronze Anvil Programs. Simply put, practitioners submitting programs and projects for Silver or Bronze Anvil consideration may also submit copies of the same materials to PRSA Chicago’s Skyline Awards.


Chicago biggest night of celebration for the communications industry will be here faster than you can conjure up the lyrics to DJ Khaled’s "All I Do Is Win!" This year's Skyline Awards Gala, sponsored by Golin, will honor the best communications practitioners, programs and projects in the Chicagoland area.

The 2019 Awards Gala will be held on Thursday, June 13 from 6-9:30 p.m. at Venue SIX10, which offers panoramic views of downtown Chicago and Lake Michigan.

This year’s theme is all about bringing Chicago’s creative community together to learn, share and be inspired by our city’s award-winning campaigns.
