It is now time for the class of 2012 to start filling the pages of this Alumni Blog. Graduation, as ever, the first week in September and this year the weather was glorious – warm and sunny with just a light breeze to make those caps fly!
We now have two prizes for the graduates who excel in their studies. The Chartered Institute of Public Relations Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Group continue to support us with a n award for the PR student of the year. This year the winner was Sophie Hanson who received a cheque and medal; Sophie had also been shortlisted for the Midland CIPR student of the year with her final year project on the fashion industry and PETA.
The Public Relations Consultants Association also provide a prize for the best dissertation or final level project. This went to Ed Willmott who has explored the world of evaluation, a much neglected area of PR. Ed has also been shortlisted for the prestigious EUPRERA award for best dissertation in Europe.
