PRSA NJ established the Pyramid Awards in 1989 to recognize excellence in public relations and communications in New Jersey.


Competition is open to all public relations professionals in New Jersey who implemented or completed qualifying public relations campaigns or single items in calendar year 2020. Competition is also open to agencies and consultants outside of New Jersey who completed projects for clients based in New Jersey. Companies are welcome to submit the same entries for the Pyramid Awards as submitted for National PRSA's Silver and Bronze Anvil Awards.

Single-items that are part of a campaign may also be entered independently in one category of the single-item division. A second fee will be required. Judges reserve the right to reassign an entry to another category.


A panel of public relations professionals will serve as judges. Entries will be evaluated on research, planning, execution and demonstrated results, as well as the effective use of budgets and resources. Judges may award multiple winners in any category as deemed appropriate. Judges reserve the right not to designate a winner in a category if no entries of award-winning caliber are submitted.


All entrants will be notified as to the disposition of their entries. Notification will occur immediately after judging.
