What Judges are looking for in your entry 

Sujit Patil, the jury co-chair for 3030 and vice president and head, of corporate brand and communications, at Godrej Industries said, "Today PR significantly impacts multiple levers – corporate reputation, employee retention, crisis mitigation, sales, product brands, stock price, stakeholder engagement and many more. Even more so post-pandemic given the level of change that is taking place in businesses.

 Picking up from there, we would like to know from the entrants as the next generation of PR leaders, what they think about the reputational role of PR, especially now when globally the challenges of recession and disruption are looming large.

The question is, what would you as a leader do differently to ensure that the PR business gets its long-overdue place when change is at a scale never known before? With PR being the one function that has a view of the entire stakeholder space, a campaign idea from you on how to demonstrate the reputational power of PR would help us understand your perspective and contribution towards raising the bar of our industry."

With that in mind, PRmoment India is very pleased to open the call for entries for the Godrej PRmoment Adfactors 3030 for the year 2023! In its night edition now, the PRmoment India 3030 is the defining platform that honours young PR talent in India.

Commenting on the awards, Adfactors PR co-founder and managing director, Madan Bahal said, "The scale of disruption and complexity that is taking place in businesses is truly unprecedented. My concern is that PR needs to evolve fast enough to deal with this challenge. Our young colleagues must be fully equipped in terms of training, education and exposure to deal with this challenge. PRmoment 3030 is one platform where awareness and solutions for the challenges ahead can be highlighted. One way to do it is to democratise power, responsibility and problem solving to the smallest possible level - so you are eliminated from the burden of carrying it all on your shoulders."
