On 21 December 2018 the Human Rights Defender received the “State Institution of the Year” award at the Armenian PR Awards.
The organizer of the event, Ms. Astghik Avetisyan, the Head of the Armenian PR Association, while presenting the award mentioned that the Office of the Human Rights Defender was the only institution that had not received any negative assessments by PR experts and mass media representatives.
According to the organizers, the PR Award is based on scientific research and independent experts' opinions. During the research, surveys were conducted with target groups (PR experts, mass media representatives), the work of state bodies and the activities of state, political and public figures were monitored, the best projects and events implemented in the sphere of public relations in Armenia were brought together and examined.
We highly appreciate the joint efforts of the Armenian PR Association and the supporters of the Award, the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) and Beeline Armenia. The assessment of our work by professional PR experts and mass media representatives is also important to us.
