(Update 10 April 2018) Please reserve your seats now for the 2018 annual awards program where PDAA celebrates its tradition of honoring excellence in public diplomacy. The awards ceremony and brunch are held Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the centrally located and beautiful Army and Navy Club, beginning at 12 noon.

In all but five years since 1993, PDAA has honored professionals in government agencies and non-government organizations working in more than 50 countries and in the United States whose work makes a difference in projecting American policies, ideas, and culture to the rest of the world.

The 21st annual PDAA Awards for Achievement in Public Diplomacy recognizes the outstanding work conducted over the past year by members of the Foreign Service, Civil Service, Locally Employed Staff (LES), employees of binational centers and American Corners, and EducationUSA advisers.
