Agricultural Relations Council (ARC) reports:

Entries in the 2014 Golden ARC Awards are due to contest headquarters on or before February 28, 2014 at 5 p.m. Early entries postmarked by January 31, 2014 will receive a $25 discount per entry.

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 $150 each if received on or before January 31, 2014, entries will go up to $175 thereafter.

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, with free entry to student ARC members.

The 35 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.

New for this year, the tactics categories have been restructured to better reflect the tactical entries entered. The Golden ARC de Excellence award for the best all-around entry in the campaigns division will also be awarded.

The winners will receive their honors at the ARC annual meeting, June 26, 2014 in Madison, WI.

The Golden ARC Awards Program began in 1990 and came to be recognized as the most esteemed award in the agricultural public relations industry. The restructured Contest reflects the many hats worn by today's PR practitioner - with categories recognizing everything from full campaigns to tactics such as media relations and innovative new uses of social media.
