EUPRERA Master Thesis Award: a unique opportunity to have an excellent thesis rewarded and to present it at the EUPRERA annual congress in Pamplona next autumn – all travel costs covered!

The award, run by EUPRERA since 1995, honours and rewards Masters theses (MSc, MA and MPhil) in any language that make a significant professional/ practical or academic contribution to the field of Public Relations in Europe.

The award is a celebration of the PR academia and of the role performed by European Higher Education Institutions in the evolution of knowledge of this field.


All theses in any language that research problems within the PR academic field and that contribute to the consolidation and/or evolution of the public relations body of knowledge will be eligible for entry.

All eligible theses should have been assessed and classified by the university of origin up to 13 months before the date of submission of the abstract to the jury and never have been a candidate to this same award.

The theses, at the time of application, must be accompanied either by a statement from the supervisor of the applicant, jury or other body of the university of origin, indicating the date of completion and/or assessment.

The award may comprise two categories: Practical Impact Award (theses following an applied research approach) and Theoretical Impact Award (theses following a basic experimental research approach and theoretical work).
