J. Walcher Communications Honored by PRSA, San Diego Press Club

J. Walcher Communications, a top public relations agency in San Diego, received an Edward L. Bernays Mark of Excellence Award from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter and several awards at the annual San Diego Press Club Excellence in Journalism Awards.

PRSA SD/IC’s annual Edward L. Bernays Awards program recognizes the industry’s outstanding public relations tactics, campaigns and professionals in categories including media relations, social media, community relations, crisis communications and special events. The JWC team received a Bronze Mark of Excellence Award, the top prize in the category, in the “Feature Stories” category for client SPURLOCK POIRIER Landscape Architects, at the 2014 awards ceremony. The award gave recognition to one of SPURLOCK POIRIER’s most reputable recent projects, the University of California, San Diego’s Keeling Apartments.

Instead of just one bylined article, JWC secured three articles that were featured in print, digital editions and outlet websites, reaching the landscape architect firm’s target audiences of landscape architects, contractors, engineers and architects.

JWC was also honored at the 41st Annual San Diego Press Club Excellence in Journalism Awards. More than 400 contestants, Press Club members and guests attended the award ceremony honoring outstanding work in print, broadcast and online journalism, at the Jacobs Center at Market Creek.

JWC’s Principal PR Consultant Laura Walcher was honored as a Board Member Emeritus “due to her distinct wisdom, experiences and contributions while serving on the San Diego Press Club board of directors.”

Walcher also received “First Place: Daily Newspapers and Websites: Essay/Commentary/Opinion” for her U-T San Diego article, “Strangers in Dallas, Embroiled in the Death of a President” and “Third Place: Non-daily Humor” for her column “What Now?” featured in Presidio Sentinel.
