WASHINGTON, DC—PRovoke Media has announced the winners of its 2023 Global SABRE Awards, the 40 best public relations campaigns from around the world. The 40 winners will receive their trophies at our Global SABRE Awards dinner, which will take place on Wednesday November 8 in Washington, DC, at the culmination of our PRovoke Global summit.

“These campaigns are the best of the best of the past year,” says Paul Holmes, chair of the SABRE Awards judges. “Less than 1% of the campaigns entered to our SABRE Awards competitions around the world—North America, EMEA, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Africa and South Asia—are selected for as Global SABRE recipients, and the represent the most creative and effective work we see over the course of the year.”

Three public relations firms have three campaigns among the top 40: Edelman, which saw work from its Canadian, US and Asia-Pacific operations recognized at the global level; Ketchum, with work from Brazil, the US, and German subsidiary Brandzeichen; and Weber Shandwick, with work from the US, Mexico and Brazil. But several firms will receive two Global SABRE trophies, including BCW, Citizen Relations, Golin, UK creative shop Hope&Glory, and WE Commnunications (including its Indian operation Avian WE).

The Global SABRE Awards ceremony will feature a countdown from number 40 to number one, as well as the presentation of our Global Agency of the Year trophies.

“All 40 of these campaigns will receive trophies at the SABRE ceremony, so they are all deserving winners who can celebrate on the night,” says Holmes. “But the countdown to the number one campaign of the year is always thrilling—and the opportunity to see highlights from the winning campaigns is inspiring. We hope all of our winners will be able to join us for the night.”
