the crapps.jpgThe Communicative Relations Awards from PR Professionals (The CRAPPs), which celebrate relationships between journalists, bloggers and PRs, have announced their shortlisted candidates this morning.

Launched on 17 November by the PR agency 10 Yetis in collaboration with Daryl Willcox Publishing, the awards are split into five light-hearted individual categories, including ‘Journalist you’d most like to bring to the dark side (employ as a PR)’, and one group award for ‘Most approachable daily national newspaper’.

The nominations have come in over the past two weeks with PR professionals and journalists getting involved, particularly over social networking platforms. Rich Leigh at 10 Yetis quoted a figure of 1,000 unique Twitter mentions on the first day of nominations, and said, “we know the media calendar is already full of awards, but the difference here is recognising the often-difficult relationship between journalists and PRs whilst having a bit of fun at the same time.”

Voting is now open until 14 December, when the results will be announced.
