PRISM AWARD ENTRY DEADLINES AND INFORMATION 
This year, both our entry system and our categories have changed. We moved to a new online entry system, that should make submitting and reviewing your entries easier than ever before. Categories have been updated and new categories added to include 12 total programs and 24 elements. Our system and categories now align with PRSA National, so when submitting those PRisms, you will be able to duplicate the submission for entry into the National Anvil Awards as well!
