The CIPRs recognise excellence and achievement in public relations and communications – ‘PRoof of success in the PR industry’ according to our industry body.
We had eight campaigns shortlisted – no mean feat in itself – and collected four gongs which highlights the strength of the PR talent within the agency.
We’re particularly pleased with the CIPR judges’ comments on our ‘Royal Fridge’ PR stunt: a “gob-smacking volume of positive media coverage and social media buzz”.
And kudos to Umpf’s Jon Priestley who won the Outstanding Young Communicator award.
Special mention to our friends at business-to-business PR agency The Right Agency who won Gold for the best Corporate and Business Communications campaign.
