The 2023 North American and African SABRE Awards are open for entries. The early deadline for both competitions is December 19, 2022, with a late deadline (additional fee required) on January 30, 2023.

The EMEA region SABRE Awards, which were previously announced, have an early deadline of November 11 and a late deadline of December 9. The EMEA competition was moved forward from its usual timing to avoid event congestion in May, with the EMEA awards ceremony this year taking place in Frankfurt in March.

The SABRE Awards competition recognizes Superior Achievement in Branding, Reputation and Engagement and has a 30-year heritage. It is the world’s largest competition recognizing excellence in public relations campaigns, attracting more than 5,000 entries annually from around the globe.

“The SABRE Awards have grown into the largest worldwide competition for excellence in public relations programming, and we are excited to once again seek out the best PR work from around the globe,” said Paul Holmes, SABRE and PRovoke Media founder. “The awards recognize PR work from employee communications to public affairs, from capital markets communication to marketing, from corporate reputation to brand-building.

“This is a staggeringly diverse industry, and SABRE celebrates that diversity.”
