PRSA Chicago 2019 Skyline Awards Gala Sponsored by Golin


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.

Our Master of Ceremonies will be WGN's Gaynor Hall, an Emmy-award winning general assignment reporter for the WGN Evening News and the WGN News at Nine. She first joined WGN-TV as a freelance reporter in April 2008.

A native Chicagoan, Gaynor is a proud alum of Whitney Young Magnet High School. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Syracuse University, with a double major in Broadcast Journalism and African American Studies.
