TEHRAN – Mina Nazari, the winner of the International Public Relations Association (IPRA) Prize, will receive her award on October 17.

Her scientific project named EQ received the golden award of IPRA 2017, among 50 finalists, IRNA reported.

The International Public Relations Association introduces the best specialists in public relations in a world event, every year, Nazari expressed in the gathering of “Public relations, from science to practice”.

She has written many essays on public relations and has received many prizes in national conferences. 

The third conference on “Public relations, from science to practice” was held commemorating the 18th death anniversary of the founder of Iran’s public relations, Hamid Notqi on July 16, 2017. 

The International Public Relations Association (IPRA) was founded 60 years ago, when in the late 1940s several Dutch and British public relations (PR) practitioners discussed the notion of organizing public relations professionals into a transnational society. 

The objective was to raise standards of public relations practice worldwide and improve the quality of PR practitioners. IPRA was formally established in London on 1 May 1955.

Today, IPRA is a worldwide organization with members in both established and emerging countries. It is governed by a geographical representative Board and run by a Secretariat in the UK. 

IPRA represents individual professionals, not agencies or companies. IPRA is recognized as an international non-governmental organization by the United Nations and has been granted consultative status by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
