Awards Submission Tool Kit HERE. “The HPRA Bravo Awards prides itself in being the only industry program that shines a light on the exceptional work being done to properly engage our communities, wield change and shift the narrative,” said HPRA National President Sonia V. Diaz. “As multicultural becomes mainstream and communication platforms continue to evolve, HPRA wants to ensure that it remains an industry leader in inclusivity, where everyone has the opportunity to participate and showcase their work.”

The HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards are expanding to represent the diverse reality of the country’s ever-changing demographics. Three new award categories have been added this year, designed to celebrate innovative and impactful campaigns that represent a broader range of audiences and are reflective of the evolution of multicultural work and the industry at large. The new categories include campaigns geared towards addressing social equity issues, LGBTQ+ populations, and the unique use of emerging media platforms, such as podcasts, to engage communities.

Winners will be announced at the 2023 HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards annual gala to be held in Chicago, a city with a rich cultural history that exemplifies the economic and social impact that Hispanics/Latinos have had on the United States over the last century.

“Chicago’s place in American history as one of the most important economic, cultural and political hubs in the country, as well as a hub for many of the world’s most influential brands and agencies, makes the city a perfect backdrop for the HPRA 2023 Bravo Awards,” said Diaz.


This year, teams will be able to choose from 23 categories to submit their work. Entries will be judged by an unaffiliated panel of veteran and senior public relations professionals representing brands, agencies, non profits, trade publications, and academia. The judges will evaluate each campaign on the merit of addressing each section of the entry, including statement of the problem, objective, research, target audiences, strategy, implementation, creativity, evaluation, and metrics. Finalists will be notified of the results by August 11, 2023.
