Across town at the 13th China Golden Awards for Excellence in Public Relations, Sinclair was awarded with more gold with another first-place finish in the Culture and Sport Communications category, also for the Singapore for Everyone campaign. Organsied biennially by the China International Public Relations Association (CIPRA), the Awards for Excellence are recognised as China’s most prestigious honour for public relations, aiming to showcase outstanding PR cases and promote the professional development of the industry in the Mainland. This year, Hong Kong Public Relations Professionals’ Association (PRPA) was invited by CIPRA to recruit entries from Hong Kong and Macau – this latest honour is the second recognition for Sinclair by PRPA this year, as Senior Account Manager Holly Chan was named Young PR Professional of the Year at a star-studded ceremony in June.
