Wallie & Golden Tusk Awards

As the region’s premier health care 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.

General Information
  • You must be a CHPRMS member to participate.
  • Non-health care CHPRMS members (e.g., advertising agencies, research firms, specialty advertising companies), may submit entries on behalf of a healthcare client located in North or South Carolina. If the healthcare client is not a member of CHPRMS, their membership fee of $55 can be added to the entry fees.
  • ***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 entries on behalf of their client in the category appropriate for their client.

  • To be eligible for judging, the program or project must have run in the market between July 16, 2017 and August 13, 2018.
