 SET OF RULES OF ANNUAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT 



 PREAMBLE 

After careful analysis of the Global, European, and National rewarding programs of professional public relations associations, the organization that is organizing the PRO PR conference (Apriori World doo; Florijana Andrašeca 18a, Zagreb, Republic of Croatia) has concluded with organizations participating in the nomination process that there is no global rewarding program that is focused on rewarding and confirms individuals, professionals working in PR or are part of communication processes and contribute to the development of the communication industry and PR profession. All existing rewarding programs in the field of public relations are mostly focused and intended for projects, not individuals. That is why a global program for rewarding individuals and one city is established every year under a common name. “PRO PR GLOBE AWARDS”, is the only reward program for which it is not necessary to pay a financial fee, but the winners are selected by these regulations. The award can be given in the current year and subsequently for the previous year during the official program of the PRO PR conference or it can be handed out in person. In this procedure, extraordinary circumstances decide, such as a global pandemic, weather conditions, global scale, military conflicts in certain areas, and all situations that may put the organizer in a situation where he cannot act according to the regulations.
Based on those reasons, the founder and president of the organizing board of the international conference for public relations and communication management PRO PR conference, Danijel Koletić, (aka Daniel Key) decided on the 28th of January 2012 to found the PRO PR GLOBE Awards aimed at better promotion, importance, value, knowledge in the field of communication industry with a focus on public relations.
Based on that decision, this set of rules for annual acknowledgment of the PRO PR conference, PRO PR Globe Awards has been created.
The official communication of the PRO PR Globe Awards program is via phone, email, social networks, digital platforms, and websites of the PRO PR conference and PRO PR Globe Awards. The official email addresses are info@aprioriworld.com and daniel.key@aprioriworld.com

Article 13.

The PRO PR Globe Entrepreneur Achievement Award is a special recognition that doesn’t have to be awarded every year. We live and move in a public relations world. The PRO PR Globe People Achievement Awards recognizes that many entrepreneurs bring new ideas, new solutions and time-saving innovations into the world. That is very difficult to achieve when you have a zero budget. Many entrepreneurs start with no funding and no access to finance but have a burning desire to communicate and use PR skills to get their ideas known, accepted, and understood. At that early stage, the often lone and lonely entrepreneur needs to: define the problems that their solution can fix, research globally, find out facts, persuade others to join in, building a stakeholder communications matrix, prepare investor communication techniques to win support for the concept, consult with potential investors and media, enable job creation in the long term amongst other skills to enable growth. All of these above are Public Relations communication activities. PRO PR Globe People Achievement Awards seeks to encourage and acknowledge these entrepreneurs. This recognition is created for entrepreneurs in any sector. They must have:

Established their new idea that is useful and which solves a problem.

Formulated professional communications to make the idea known, accepted, and understood by multiple audiences such as investors, stakeholders, and potential users of the idea.

Created opportunities to trial their idea with critical users and used the feedback to modify their ideas.

Ensured that their project grew and received measurable investments.

Developed and trained their team/s to begin to expand and grow.

Ensured a sustainable plan that will see international uptake.
