Magazine shortlisted for award

WLV Dialogue has reached the finals of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations PRide Awards in the External Newspaper/Magazine category for the Midlands.

The awards recognise best practice in public relations throughout the UK and are open to professionals from companies, consultancies, associations, charities and government organisations.

The quarterly magazine, aimed at an external audience, was launched in June last year and includes news, features, latest research and profiles.

Earlier this year, WLVdialogue reached the finals of the national Chartered Institute of Public Relations Excellence Awards in the External Newspaper or Magazine category.

Ann Mealor, CIPR Acting Director General said: “This year more than ever, consultancies and organisations entering the PRide Awards want to spotlight their achievements while boosting morale - and being a PRide finalist does just that. Having gone through rigorous judging to reach the shortlist is a great achievement and I offer my congratulations to all those who have reached this stage of the competition.”

There were 1,448 entries for the PRide Awards this year and winners will be announced on November 20 at the ICC in Birmingham. For more information see To see WLV Dialogue see
