Established in 1995 by the International Section of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the Atlas Award for Lifetime Achievement in International Public Relations recognizes individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the practice and profession of public relations on a global scale. Through a substantial body of their work, recipients have demonstrated leadership in international public relations for employees, clients, institutions, governments, agencies or other organizations. The Atlas Award is presented during the annual PRSA International Conference. As part of the Award recognition, each recipient is invited to prepare a White Paper on a specific aspect of international public relations practice.
