Monday, 23 January 2017

We are glad to inform you that Public relations Council of India (PRCI), the premier organization of PR, advertising, media and HR professionals and academicians, will hold its 11th Global Communication Conclave on March 3 to 5, 2017 at Bengaluru with theme: DISRUPTION.

As a prelude to the Conclave, we at PRCI, in association with Mumbai Press Club, are organizing a Global Essay Campaign.

All Communication professionals such as journalists, PR, advertising, HR professionals and academicians connected with mass communication institutes are welcome to join the drive.

The essays will be carried in a compendium, powered by Concept PR,   and released at the Global Conclave on March 3, 2017.

To be fair to writers, we suggest the following options of topics:

For Indian Communication Professionals

Demonetisation: Pain or Gain?
Everybody is talking about it because each and every one of us is impacted by it. Please analyse the issue, its impact and the communication aspects related to it
Ecological Crisis – Its forever?
Are we as communicators effectively dealing with the environment, sustainability, CSR in a responsible way? Re we as communicators losing track and resort to mere lip service or cosmetic communication?
Swachh Bharat – fad or reality?
Has the communication hit the right target? Have communicators taken it up as a big challenge and dealt with it? Or was it left out as a political gimmick? Analyse success/failures attached with the drive.
Financial Inclusion – On right track?
This is a much talked about issue for ages. From Garibi Hatao to Pradhan Sevak, all successive governments have been talking about it. Let’s do a reality check and how and where communication can play a role

For International Communication Professionals:

  1. Disruption – A global Phenomenon?
After the social media invasion, Disruption seems to have become a buzzword all over. Is it
for real or disruption is just another fad or misused word. Whatever it is, isn’t disruption impacting us at every step? For instance, Obama disrupted the way Americans voted, Brexit did disrupt European relations, terrorism is disrupting world economies. So, let’s discuss the impact and the role of communicators in understanding disruption and getting over it.
  1. India – Expectations from an emerging Global Super Power
India has emerged as a new investment destination thanks to its democracy, political stability and above all open window policies. Yet, critics say its miles to go for India before it emerges as an economic super power. What is that the world expects of India. Is India doing the right communication? Are the right signals going out? Please analyse all aspects and post your case study.

The conditions and rules are simple:

  • The campaign is open to all media professionals – journalists, PR, HR and Advertising practitioners, mass communication academicians and rsearchers
  • The writeups could be in 600 word to 1200 words – the choice is yours.
