Director of Communications & Marketing Lindsay Weisenauer notes the honor to be recognized by Central Ohio PRSA among the other top communications and marketing teams in the region.

“Winning six of the first-place PRism awards is a significant accomplishment for a local government, and I am particularly proud of the breadth of work for which we were recognized,” Weisenauer says. “From our Forever Dublin program that showcases resources for our senior community to a Taylor Swift-inspired social media campaign educating residents about City services to the Link Ahead podcast, these awards showcase the diversity and quality of our world-class communications.”

“The City’s Dublin Talent Connect events serve our economic development efforts and workforce, and the Safe Space Program is a City-wide effort that demonstrates our dedication to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all. We are proud of the level of service we provide for our exceptional community.”

“Being named among the best of the outstanding public relations professionals in the Central Ohio region is a true honor,” says Visit Dublin Ohio’s Marketing Director Sara Blatnik. “We are thrilled to receive the Best of Show accolade for the Downtown Dublin St. Paddy’s Pub Crawl, in which more than 700 participants turned in completed passports after visiting Bridge Park and Historic Dublin businesses this past March. Several of those businesses had record sales days due to the pub crawl foot traffic in Downtown Dublin.”

“We continuously strive to promote Dublin, Ohio, as the premier destination in the region, and these awards validate our efforts in showcasing everything Dublin has to offer.”

The Central Ohio PRSA Chapter is a leader in furthering the development of Columbus’ public relations professionals. Founded in 1950, the organization has grown to serve more than 250 members in the agency, corporate, government and nonprofit sectors.
