The Golden ARC awards contest honors the stellar work created by professionals in the agricultural industry.

The format and requirements for the Golden ARC awards are similar to other leading PR awards programs, based on best practices for public relations and public affairs campaigns and tactics.

Categories fall into two divisions - Campaigns and Tactics. A student category is also available, free to student ARC members. The 36 categories reflect the broad scope of public relations and public affairs activities today, including campaigns and a range of tactics, from traditional media releases to social media. The Golden ARC de Excellence award for the best all-around entry in the campaigns division will also be awarded.

The contest is open to both ARC and non-ARC members. The entry fee for the first entry for non-ARC members is $350 (includes a membership fee). Additional entries are $175 each. Student entries are free for all student ARC members. The winners will receive their honors at the ARC annual meeting, March 20-22, 2013 in Oklahoma City, OK.
