Hispanic Public Relations Association Announces Call-For-Entries for the 2022 HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards

The industry’s premier program for multicultural communications will add Best Spanish-language Campaign category to this year’s awards.

MIAMI, FL [April 5, 2022] -- The Hispanic Public Relations Association (HPRA) announces its call-for-entries for the 2022 HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards - the industry’s highest accolade in Hispanic communications. The HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards celebrate the best corporate, agency, and non-profit public relations and marketing teams, and the stellar work they produce in the industry’s multicultural space. The submission deadline closes on June 3, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. Winners will be announced at the annual ¡BRAVO! Awards gala taking place in Austin, Texas, on September 29, 2022, at the Fairmont Austin Hotel.

Recognizing the increased demand for engaging Spanish-dominant communities throughout the United States, the HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards will include a new category, Best Spanish-Language Campaign, elevating the work that has been geared toward reaching Spanish-speaking populations in the U.S. or Latin America.

“As we aim to evolve the organization to reflect the reality of our ever-changing population, we want to make sure that communications teams across the country have the chance to participate and showcase their work at every level,” said HPRA National President Sonia V. Diaz. “With the continuing rise of disinformation and the critical need for civic engagement in our communities, we understand the importance of Spanish-language outreach, particularly for our most underserved communities. We look forward to recognizing the teams who have championed this work during this time.”

Traditionally held in New York City, the HPRA National ¡BRAVO! Awards will move its annual gala to Austin, Texas this year in celebration of its newly formed Texas chapter and in the spirit of creating a more inclusive and accessible experience for Hispanic communications professionals throughout the country.

“HPRA is an organization whose leadership prides itself in being as diverse as the communities that make up the fabric of our culture and we wanted our awards program to reflect that diversity as well,” said Diaz. “As a state that possesses so much of our rich cultural history and the highest Hispanic population growth in the nation, we felt Texas was an ideal place to bring our industry professionals from every corner of the country together to celebrate their work. As HPRA continues to grow, we aim to bring the program to other markets in the future.”
