The Armenian PR Awards is the best communication event in the field of communication, which encourages the specialists and individuals in public relations and communication, who play a significant role in public and political life, publicly sound initiatives and events, campaigns, and tricks that have received public attention.

The Armenian PR Association has been conducting scientific research since 2015, which enables the collection of information about the field of communication, major representatives and structures, communication management tools, and technologies.

“The PR Association's research team includes scientists, young researchers, public relations, and media experts. In the framework of the qualitative research, in-depth interviews, expert surveys, and focus group discussions were conducted; as well as media and social media monitoring. Quantitative research has made it possible to explore public opinion, the numerical or percentage distribution of public events, and spatiality. Within a year, 8700 people were surveyed; 5700 were women, and 3000 were men. In-depth interviews were conducted with 73 field experts and 120 communication field experts. 53 focus group discussions were organized during the year: each group includes 12 people from different age groups - 20-35, 35-50, 50 and more,” said Astghik Avetisyan, President of the Armenian PR Association.

After summarizing and analyzing the final results of the study, the top three are formed. The professional committee secretly votes; as the result of voting, one is elected as a winner.

The Chairman of the Professional Committee of the Armenian PR Awards is a well-known German speech-writer, communication specialist, and lecturer, Dr Vazrik Basil.

"A few days ago, I read the following in the German train notice box, "Do what you can, you will see that you have managed to do the impossible." In this difficult political, economic and social situation in Armenia, it is good for everyone to do their best in their field. Public relations should be high-quality, educational, and purposeful in its sphere. In this context, the Armenian PR Awards emphasizes the need for professionalism, and encourages public relations professionals to continue and improve their work,” said in his speech the chairman of the professional committee of the award, a well-known German communications specialist, St. Heinrich the Knight of the Covenant Vazrik Basil.
