Organized by Spin Partners since 2001, the Competition helps to reinforce the visibility of an ethical lobbying between public authorities and interest groups. It is sponsored each year by a French or European parliamentarian, who shares his vision of lobbying with the students and institutional relations professionals participating in the Competition.
The interests of the Competition for partners (companies, federations, NGOs…):
– Having five dossiers (one per master participant) for the same subject, each with its own information and specific recommendations.
– Testing new strategies or identifying innovative lobbying practices.
– Publicly communicating their approach to lobbying in an open and transparent manner.
The Competition calendar:
From October to December 2017, the partners of the Competition work out a lobbying problem, in consultation with the organizers. Five partners are selected to submit their topics to the students.
Between January and May 2018, the students of the five participating masters (Institute for Political Studies, Universities, Business Schools) meet with the representatives of the partners and prepare their analysis and operational proposals.
Between May and June 2018, student dossiers are evaluated by a jury composed of representatives of the partners and external public affairs professionals.
At the end of June 2018, an award ceremony is held in the presence of the Parliamentary Sponsor of the Competition, as well as other politicians, lobbyists and journalists.
Interested organizations are called to contact us before December 1st, to become partner of this new Lobbying Competition edition.
