We are delighted to announce that we have been named Outstanding Small PR Consultancy in the Anglia, Thames and Chiltern region.
The title – one of the most prestigious in the industry – was given to Prominent at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations PRide awards.
We also scooped a Gold award for our work with Dedham-based company British Baby Box in the Low Budget Campaign category and a Silver award for our work with the national charity campaign for Will Aid in the Not For Profit category.
If that was not enough our fantastic Marketing Manager Abi Gagen was also named Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year.
Managing Director Helen Rudd said:
“This was an absolutely incredible night for our team. There are only five of us and we are only three years old. We were up against agencies which are much bigger and more established than we are. Winning is testament to just how special and talented our team is and a celebration of the outstanding results we have achieved for our clients and their businesses. I am very proud of Prominent PR and how far we have come since we launched in 2014.”
The British Baby Box account is managed by Editorial Director Ellen Widdup and Account Executive Elly Worsley.
The Will Aid account is managed by Marketing Manager Abi Gagen.
"To be named Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year is the highlight of my career to date. I was headhunted by Prominent PR a year ago and have had the opportunity to work on some of its largest accounts. We are a very passionate, determined and ambitious team and I am honored to be a part of it.”
