This year, it is held under the theme "The Future: Ideas and Technologies" and highlights the need for technologies to work for good ideas.

From today, agencies and companies can apply for the prestigious BAPRA Bright Awards 2024 PR achievements competition. Organized for the fourteenth consecutive year by the Bulgarian Association of PR Agencies (BAPRA), it becomes more successful each year. The application period will continue until February 23, 2024, and the award ceremony will take place at the end of March.

The authority of the BAPRA Bright Awards is based on both the valuable entries and the entirely international jury of proven professionals. There are no changes in the competition categories, as well as in the participation fees.

"This year, we chose to focus the competition on the most relevant thing on the horizon – artificial intelligence and its reflection on communications. And we declare that they can be extremely useful, but above all as a means of facilitating and improving human ideas. Professionalism remains within us, in our minds, and hearts," - said the Chairman of BAPRA, Alexander Hristov. PhD
