“It is my great pleasure to serve as IPRA President in 2024 and I hope that my year will inspire all our members to become active contributors to our global team. My key goal is to strengthen the ability of our profession for reliable and ethical practice of public relations in the era of artificial intelligence”, said Pavlović Bujas.

The inauguration was also attended by the director of Manjgura, Krešimir Macan, who pointed out that the appointment of Nataša Pavlović Bujas is a great recognition for the profession in the region, because for the first time we got a president of IPRA from these parts, and it is a clear indication of how much public relations as a profession is progressing in the region and have been recognized internationally through numerous awards, including IPRA’s.

“I wish Natasha a constructive and effective mandate, I believe that she will exceed all expectations and bring innovations with her ideas and knowledge that will raise the global profession of public relations to an even higher level. I am sure that they will also include colleagues from the region in their next IPRA projects and events”, said Macan.

IPRA, the International Public Relations Association, was founded in 1955 and is the leading global network of PR professionals. The goal of IPRA is to improve reliable communication and ethical practice of public relations through networking, code of conduct and intellectual leadership of the profession.

IPRA is the organizer of the annual global competition for public relations, the Golden World Awards for Excellence (GWA), and Croatian public relations agencies have won more than 13 of them in the past few years – Abeceda komunikacije (4), CTA komunikacije (3), Vajt (2) … In Manjgura, we are especially proud of the GWA won by Ana Gojanović Rakić in 2015 for the project “Hodajući kolegij” from Šibenik, and 4 GWA finals for the Rakoborci and Total Croatia Travel Info projects. We are still looking for an answer to the question of whether it was Ana who brought the first PR Oscar to Croatia, or if someone else succeeded before her… if you know him, please let us know.
