The Lagos State Chapter of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), a leading and most populated branch of the Institute in the country, is set to hold its seventh edition of the Lagos Public Relations Industry Gala and Award (LaPRIGA). The event will be held at D’podium International Event Center, Ikeja, Lagos, on Friday, December 2, 2022, by 5 PM.
The theme for this year’s edition is: “Hall of Fame”. This year’s edition has about 120 entries which make it the highest number of entries since the inception of LaPRIGA.
Commenting on the event, Comfort Nwankwo, Chairman of Lagos NIPR, said: This event is proof of our commitment to maintain leadership in professionalism and excellence. It promises to be a night of glamour, elegance, joy, class, and celebrations exclusively for the communications industry with the most influential stakeholders.
“The entries for this year’s award in the various categories have been encouraging. We will be recognising Public Relations practitioners, stakeholders, and organizations that have through their activities contributed to the essence of this profession and the development of the industry,” she said.
“One of the high points of this year’s award will be the induction of previous winners of the PR Practitioner of the Year Category. This category is the numero uno of the LAPRIGA Award.
“Since inception, we have had six winners of that category. The 7th person will emerge at this year’s LAPRIGA. We are doing this to engender healthy competition among PR Practitioners. Any outstanding member of NIPR can win in this category,” she explained.
The LaPRIGA has consistently recognized corporate organizations for the extraordinary act of giving and loving, which has made a demonstrable difference in host communities and in the lives of specific persons. These prizes are administered by the Advisory Board of LaPRIGA comprising individuals of impeccable character and requisite academic and professional accomplishments.
