With the entry deadline less than a month away (15 February), this session is the last opportunity that entrants will have to get all their questions answered face-to-face about how to submit an award-winning entry. Prepping for PRISMs takes place on Thursday, 28 January, at the PRISA offices in Randburg and on Friday, 29 January, in Cape Town.

"The Prepping for PRISMs session is the ideal opportunity for entrants to be guided through the online process - and get all their questions answered," says PRISM Convenor, Bridget von Holdt. "It will also give us valuable feedback on how we can improve the system."

Full agenda

In addition to addressing online judging, the three-hour-long programme is packed with tools and tips from talented public relations professionals - all with the aim of equipping entrants on how to impress the judges - and beat the competition! The draft programme includes:
