We’re passing this along for our friends at the Public Diplomacy Council:
It’s time for you to nominate one or more of the ten best public diplomacy acts, actions, ideas, programs or decisions of 2015.
The rules are simple: anyone can make a nomination. In fact, nominations are welcome from active and retired public diplomacy officers as well as from Ambassadors, DCM’s and other observers of public diplomacy in academe, business and government.
The procedure is simple too: use a subject line of no more than a dozen (12) words to identify the action, idea, program or decision you are nominating. Then, if you want to, in the body of the message, in 140 characters or less, say why you believe this nomination is one of the year’s ten best in public diplomacy. Or, maybe it’s obvious?
Send your nomination to the Public Diplomacy Council’s special “Ten Best” inbox at “PD10Best@gmail.com“
Nominations must be received in the email inbox by noon Monday, December 28, to be considered.
Identity of the person or group nominating will remain confidential. All decisions in selecting the “Ten Best” of 2015 are made by a jury of PDC members, are final, and are not subject to appeal.
The 10 best of Public Diplomacy will be announced on December 31 on the Public Diplomacy Council website.
Send your nominations now! and pass this message on!
The Public Diplomacy Council was founded in 1988 as the Public Diplomacy Foundation. Dedicated to fostering greater public recognition of public diplomacy in the conduct of foreign affairs, the Foundation evolved to serve also as a resource and advocate for the teaching, training, and development of public diplomacy as an academic discipline. The Council is a nonprofit organization committed to the importance of the academic study, professional practice, and responsible advocacy of public diplomacy.
