CIPR Cymru Wales PRide Awards shortlist announced

More than 30 of Wales’ leading public relations teams, consultancies and individuals have made the shortlist of the 2014 CIPR Cymru Wales PRide Awards, the nation’s premier public relations awards scheme.

Of the shortlisted organisations across the region, Equinox Communications, Golley Slater, and Effective Communications, led the way, being shortlisted eight, seven, and six times respectively.

This year’s entries were all of a very high standard, highlighting the work that is taking place across the UK amongst from Welsh based professional PR teams and individuals. To win an account or to work on a project is a challenging but rewarding enough experience in itself – but to then pull it all together again to enter it for a potential CIPR PRide Award is equally challenging, involving additional effort and hard work in an already busy day. I would like to congratulate all of you who have entered and all who have been shortlisted for an award and wish you every success when the results are finally announced in October.
