The PRINZ Communicator of the Year recognises excellence in personal communication skills, from a leader who espouses open and honest communications within his or her organisation.
Every year, PRINZ members from around the country make nominations, from which the highest voted winner is chosen.
Nominees have included leaders of business and industry, politicians, athletes and authors who are consistently robust, transparent and honest in their communications and who support and endorse public relations both internally and externally.
Previous winners of the PRINZ Communicator of the Year include Sam Johnson, Bob Parker, Rob Fyfe, Pita Sharples, Dame Cath Tizard and the late Sir Peter Blake.
2013 Nominations close Monday 2 September. The 2013 recipient will be announced at the 'PRINZ Experienced Practitioners' event on Friday 8 November in Wellington.
