On behalf of the Carolinas Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Society (CHPRMS) Board of Directors and all CHPRMS members, welcome to the 2018 Wallie & Golden Tusk Awards competition! 


As the region’s premier healthcare marketing and public relations society, we proudly count among our membership some of the Southeast’s most talented marketing and public relations professionals. As such, it is our great honor and privilege to host the awards competition that spotlights the very fine work they produce.


***New this year, we are pleased to include two judging categories - one for Hospital/Health Systems and one for Non-Hospitals. These categories will be judged separately so that clinics and other healthcare specialties are competing among like rivals.  Advertising and creative agencies should submit their entries on behalf of their client in the appropriate category for their client. 


As we did last year, we are asking you to submit one PowerPoint slide with each entry, with the visuals embedded that you would like to be shown during the awards presentation, should your entry win. *Please note - video and audio clips may not exceed 60 seconds in length. Please create your PowerPoint slide in a 4:3 aspect ratio.**


Please create a username and password for purposes of registering and submitting your contest entry/entries. Usernames and passwords must be at least four characters in length.

You will receive an email confirming your username and password, allowing you to formally log in and begin the contest submission process.


Again, welcome to the CHPRMS Wallie and Golden Tusk Awards competition. 

We look forward to seeing you and your work December 5th - 7th, at the Francis Marion Hotel, in Charleston, SC. 


Thank you!

Michele Affronte-McCausland
