Gold winners celebrate after picking up 2012 Home Counties South CIPR PRide Awards
The Hilton Brighton Metropole last night (Fri 28 Sep) played host to this year’s leading regional honours in the PR profession, the 2012 Home Counties South CIPR PRide Awards.
Among winners and finalists at the black-tie gala event were Pegasus, a specialist healthcare communications consultancy, picking up four gold awards in categories including ‘Best Use of Media Relations’ and the award for ‘Best Use of Social Media’.
Seven other leading PR agencies, teams and practitioners picked up one gold award each and can now look forward to being recognised as organisations that have earned the ultimate regional PR accolade.
Over 120 of the region’s leading public relations practitioners attended the annual awards ceremony, sponsored regionally by Huntress Group, and supported by national sponsors Precise, PRWeek, and Specialist Speakers.
CIPR CEO Jane Wilson MCIPR, commented:
It’s been a year of celebration like no other in the UK and yet again it is time to celebrate outstanding performances from public relations teams across the region. Every organisation and individual who was shortlisted for an award at last night’s event should be extremely proud of their achievements against a high standard of competition.
