CommPRO Editorial Staff
Who’s your favorite brand spokesperson? For the first time in the PR industry, there’s an award for the best celebrity brand spokesperson, part of the 2019 SPOKEies® Awards.
If you are a PR pro or have a strong communications sense, you can nominate your favorite celebrity brand spokespeople—think Neil Patrick Harris, Tina Fey, or Shaquille O’Neal. Additionally, nominations can be submitted for the best individual to become famous through their work with a brand, such as Flo from Progressive, The Sprint Guy Paul, and Jan from Toyota.
Celebrities will join past winners representing brands such as PepsiCo, Allianz Global Assistance, Atlantic Health Systems and The Better Business Bureau among others. This year, awards will also be presented for the best Corporate, Non-Profit, Multicultural and Global Campaign spokespeople covering various industries.
Spokespeople will be judged based on their trust and authenticity, plus their ability to engage the audience and cogently communicate their organization’s messages. Winners will be announced in October, alongside the rest of the SPOKEies® categories.
Celebrity nominations can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or submitted on www.spokeies.com. Submissions should include the spokesperson’s name, the brand they’re associated with, a brief description of why they’re deserving and note if the individual submitting worked on the campaign—you can watch the video review here. For other category submissions, please visit www.spokeies.com.
