Public relations professionals from Thames and Chiltern honoured at 10th anniversary of CIPR PRide Awards

Public relations professionals from the Thames and Chiltern region were celebrating last Friday as practitioners and organisations were honoured for their work over the past 12 months at the 10th anniversary celebration of the CIPR Thames and Chiltern PRide Awards at Sopwell House, Hertfordshire.

Former Gold Award Winners CubanEight added to their awards collection, picking up two top prizes for their Consumer Relations Campaign and the Best Use of Media Relations. Berkshire-based consultancy Promote PR collected two gold awards of their own for the region's Best Public Sector Campaign and Best Sporting Campaign.

Four gold awards were presented to BOTTLE PR, a 30-strong public relations consultancy, which celebrated Account Director Abbie Dando’s recognition as Outstanding Young Communicator before the agency was named as the region's Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy.

The University of Bedfordshire also went home with a handful of gold awards including the evening's special award for the Best Use of Planning, Research, Measurement and Evaluation which was in recognition of the University’s work around its Postgraduate Prospectus 2013.

The CIPR PRide Awards celebrate the very best in public relations from across the UK’s regions and nations. This year’s entries were all of an incredibly high standard, highlighting the industry-leading work that is taking place right across the UK. I would like to congratulate all of those who have won an award; their success demonstrates their exemplary achievements in such a thriving profession, and recognises the impact they have made in their region and beyond.
