President of the Organizing Committee of the PRO PR Awards, Mr. Danijel Koletić officially awarded Mr. Jernej Smisl with the statue representing this prestigious award.
Jernej Smisl, Director of Corporate Communications and Strategic Marketing at the New Credit Bank Maribor (Nova Kreditna Banka Maribor), significantly contributed to the positioning and development of the public relations profession in Slovenia, which is why the International Jury of the PRO PR Awards has rewarded him with this prestigious recognition.
The PRO PR Awards ceremony was held in April this year in Zlatibor, Serbia, as part of the 16th PR0 PR Conference at which 23 communications experts from 13 European countries received their awards. All the winners were rewarded with a recognition and a unique statue created by the students of the Novi Sad Academy of Arts.
PRO PR Awards program was founded in 2012, marking the tenth anniversary of the PRO PR Conference, the first international conference on public relations in South East Europe. It is the only recognition for which no fee is required, while an international jury of acknowledged communications experts is deciding on the winners.
