The finalists have been announced! It’s time to celebrate the best public relations work in Greater Cincinnati. 

Join us on Thursday November 14 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the Newport Aquarium for the 2019 Blacksmith Awards. We'll reveal the best PR campaigns and tactics of the year, and honor some outstanding professionals.

We'll also be toasting:

In honor of Kroger, our 2019 Presenting Sponsor, and its Zero Hunger Zero Waste campaign, we invite all attendees to bring nonperishable food items (no glass, please) to the Blacksmiths to benefit the Freestore Foodbank. Financial contributions also can be made - we'll provide information on how to do this soon. Attendees who choose to donate will be entered to win a $100 Kroger gift card.
