The Holmes Report is calling on PR agencies to take part in its annual agency research, via a simple online process that combines the Global 250 Agency Ranking with our Agencies of the Year research process.

PR firms can now enter their 2019 fee income for our annual Global 250 PR Agency Ranking — the most authoritative study of its kind, chronicling the size and stature of the global PR industry since 2007.

In addition, the same form can be used to enter into consideration for our 2020 Agencies of the Year in North America, EMEA, Latin America and Asia-Pacific. Agencies of the Year will again be honoured at our various SABRE Awards shows across the globe this year.

The simplified process saves firms the trouble of having to provide their financial information twice. However it should be noted that firms do not have to take part in the Rankings to submit themselves for consideration into Agencies of the Year, and vice versa — as the form makes clear.

In addition, if you would like to schedule a more in-depth review of your AOY submission, please email an editor


The deadline for both the Agency Ranking and Agencies of the Year is February 21, 2020*. You may save and resume your entry at any point, and you will also receive a unique link to edit your entry before the deadline passes.

For any queries or for further information, please email us.

*Asia-Pacific & LatAm firms have until 26 June to enter Agencies of the Year, but if they wish to be ranked in the Global 250, they must complete this section by 21 February. Firms from all other regions (North America and EMEA) wishing to take part in the Rankings and Agencies of the Year must do so by 21 February.

**This form is for the Rankings & AOY process only. Agencies of the Year are recognised at our regional SABRE Awards but SABRE campaign awards are entered here
