Background on the Douglas Smith Student Award
The Douglas Smith Student Award is an annual award now in its fourth year. Its aim is to encourage young PR talent and, in order to qualify, entrants have the task of developing an international campaign brief.
The award was created in memory of Douglas Smith, founder and patron of CIPR International and a great supporter of young and emerging talent. It aims to encourage the next generation of PR practitioners to think internationally and creatively and is awarded to students who demonstrate talent in communications and an understanding of global PR.
