IPR Measurement Commission judge each submission based on the quality of program objectives and research design, how measurement and evaluation were integrated into program execution, and the effectiveness of the methodology in program evaluation. Each entry is required to include the research methodology and the key findings.
The IPR Measurement Commission is a nationally comprised body of members drawn from four segments of the global public relations industry: corporations, government, and non-profits; public relations agencies; research firms; and academia. Their mission is to develop and promote standards and best practices for research, measurement, and analytics that contribute to ethical, strategic, and effective public relations.
Any organization is eligible to submit an entry. Past recipients have included the Centers for Disease Control with Hager Sharp; the National Education Association; and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
