Page and the Institute for Public Relations conduct an annual competition for the writing of original case studies by students enrolled in a school of business, communication or journalism and who are pursuing a degree that is focused on corporate communications and the practice of public relations. The objectives of the competition are to introduce the practical applications of the core principles that define public relations as a critical function of management to scholars, teachers, and students, and encourage research that contributes to the profession's body of knowledge and provides practical suggestions on how to improve the corporate public relations function. The 2024 Case Study Competition is now open for entries, apply here. The deadline to apply is Friday, January 15, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
