The PRAM PRism Awards program began in 2003 as a way to honor and recognize outstanding work in the field of Public Relations by professionals within the state of Mississippi. The awards are judged by professionals outside the geographical boundaries of the Southern Public Relations Federation — Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Louisiana. A "Best of Show" is awarded as well as a "Judge’s Choice". The highest award honor goes to the PRism winners, followed by Awards of Excellence and Certificates of Achievement.
The Public Relations Association of Mississippi (PRAM) recognizes outstanding work in the field of Public Relations through several awards programs presented during the annual state conference each spring. In addition to the annual awards, PRAM recognizes professionals, educators, and students for their overall career contributions. A list of those awards includes the Professional Achievement Award, the Educator of the Year Award, and the Student of the Year Award.
