pride-awards-2016-1

The North East shortlist has been released for the 2016 CIPR PRide awards, recognising the outstanding work in public relations being delivered by agencies and in-house teams alike from across the North East.

More than 20 local organisations are represented in the record shortlist of 68 entries, many shortlisted a number of times each in different categories, and winners will be announced at a glitzy, black-tie evening ceremony at The Biscuit Factory on December 2nd.

Independent PR consultant Debbie Sharratt is the CIPR North East committee’s PRide Coordinator. She said: “We are incredibly pleased and proud to have seen such a huge number of local PR campaigns recognised by the judges this year, as we know how much fantastic and in many cases important work is being done in the region.

“It’s especially great to see some new entrants in the shortlist, reflecting the emergence of start up businesses along with the more established businesses and organisations in the region. We are very much looking forward to the awards event and to celebrate the incredible talent in the communications industry in the North East.”

As well as celebrating the cream of the crop in local PR, the awards dinner gives organisations around the region a chance to showcase their products and services, and CIPR North East has sponsorship opportunities for the award event.
