Get Prepared for the Pegasus Awards at Member’s Free Breakfast: Creating an Award-Winning Entry

Thinking about entering the Pegasus Awards or other award programs? Winning awards for communication programs is an important part of validating a team’s hard work and earning credibility and prestige within the industry. But many times, the time and effort put into the award entries don’t result in wins.

Join PRSA Dallas for on June 27 for a breakfast event as Jody Venturoni of LDWW offers her expertise and tips on creating winning entries. Jody will share her tips and personal observations after years of judging global and national award programs as well as submitting award winning campaigns. And, just announced on June 7, LDWW won three 2018 PRSA Silver Anvils for its work with Carnival Corporation and GameStop.

Through this session, you’ll learn

• How to tell a story with your award entry
• Easy tips for improving your chances of winning
• The importance of submitting a best-in-class program that accomplishes what it sets out to do
• How to consider the judges’ experience to create a compelling entry
• The most important components of the entry so you don’t end up with a list of tactics

Jody Venturoni is a 25-plus-year veteran communicator who blends strategic consulting with operational strength. She helped launch LDWW, a nationally recognized integrated communications agency and one of the top 100 independent PR firms in the US. An award-winning crisis communications and reputation management consultant, Jody has worked with a notable roster of Fortune 500 companies, national sports teams and leagues, high-profile CEOs, major non-profits and start-ups. Jody has been profiled by PRWeek as a “Top 20 Agency Manager” in the U.S., was named as Editors’ Choice “People to Watch” and was a PRNews “PR Team Leader” finalist in 2011. She serves as judge for numerous national and international industry awards, including the prestigious Cannes Lions, PRSA Silver and Bronze Anvils and SABRE awards.
