The Richmond Standard earns international recognition.

The hyper-local community news publication, sponsored by the Chevron Richmond Refinery, earned Bronze in the Institutional Image/Media & Entertainment category at the Lisbon PR Awards, held virtually on Thursday, Sept. 3.

Award candidates were judged by 25 leading communications experts representing public relations agencies throughout the world. They saw the significant value the first-of-its-kind, corporate-sponsored news publication has brought to the Richmond community. The Standard has emerged as the leading resource for local news and information in the Richmond and West Contra Costa County community and is helping to restore and sustain Richmond’s prideful reputation.

Singer Associates Public Relations San Francisco is proud to have helped launch and grow the Standard, which also earned Gold for “Best Newsroom” at the 2018 Bulldog Awards.

The Lisbon PR Awards is part of the Lisbon Awards Group, which also holds the Lisbon International Advertising Festival, the Lisbon International Health Festival and Prémios Lusófonos da Criatividade.
