Established in 1970, by leading practitioners of the day, the Institute of Public Relations of Singapore is a non-profit organisation and the only professional accrediting body for Public Relations (PR) practitioners in Singapore.
The Institute promotes excellence in the industry through knowledge exchange platforms and training programmes that are aligned with the many changes and developments in the practice of Public Relations and Communications today.
IPRS has a growing membership consisting of professionals from diverse backgrounds in public relations, journalism, advertising, marketing, education and management - a factor that has contributed to the Institute’s strength and dynamism.
There are nine Student Chapters with various tertiary institutions to create opportunities for communications students and IPRS members to share expertise and experiences.
The IPRS introduced the Biennial PRISM Awards (Public Relations In the Service of Mankind) in 1987 to recognise and reward excellence in Public Relations and Communications in Singapore and the region.
