“This is a breakthrough for PRSP as we use a digital system for registration, nomination and submission of entries, payment, screening and judging. At last, we are able to catch up with advances in technology in our global environment to recognize outstanding PR campaigns and promote excellence in the PR practice,” Saracho said. “The digital system will also reduce manhours and cost of reproducing six (6) copies of the entries as everything, except for Publications, will be submitted online.
