The competition is intended to help public relations practitioners develop better plans, use creativity to produce better results, and increase professional skill levels to produce the best public relations programs and tools.

PacRim Marketing Group has been the recipient of PRSA’s Koa Anvils and Koa Hammers (a tool/tactic, which is part of a public relations program) in the past for programs, including its Korean-language video, “Hawaii Style,” parodying the top viewed video on YouTube at the time, “Gangnam Style” and for Reputation/Brand Management campaigns.
