More awards recognition for Skout!

Another week, another awards nomination for us here at Skout! We’re delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for three PRCA DARE Awards and two Prolific North Awards. This follows our recent hat trick of shortlists for the PR Moment Awards earlier this year.

For both the PRCA DARE and Prolific North Awards we’ve been shortlisted for work we delivered on behalf for our client Wax Digital in the Integrated Communications campaign and Trade and B2B campaign of the Year categories. These dedicated campaigns saw us create content such as guides, thought leadership articles, an online quiz and new stories for in bound marketing, lead generation and PR. These campaigns also helped support the company’s digital marketing goals and SEO

We’re also chuffed to be recognised in the Small PR Agency of the Year category for both awards. In these categories we are up against some of the North’s leading B2B PR agencies all aiming to take the top title. Our entries demonstrate how as an agency we champion the need for fresh communication approaches to a variety of serious business topics and niche audiences. This double recognition from two separate judging panels also supports our ambitions by helping us take a step closer to being recognised as the North West’s (and UK’s) top B2B PR agency.

Being shortlisted for an incredible eight awards so far this year is a true testimony to all our hard work as an agency.

To kick off the awards season we will be attending our first event this evening for the PR Moment Awards in Manchester. A black tie event with a champagne reception is always a treat, so we’re certain that we and our fellow B2B PRs and marketers on the shortlist will have a great night. Keep your fingers crossed for us, and we’ll let you know how we get on!

Why was PR your chosen career? I have always loved writing and all things creative. I remember in year 4 gathering a few people together and starting the school newspaper!

Why was PR your chosen career? It wasn’t! I have always been slightly obsessed with the media though. Since reading the news in the mocked-up news studio at Bradford’s National Media Museum as a child, the addiction has stuck. I worked in TV and broadcast media in Beijing for four years (which was an eye-opener) before coming back to the...

On Sunday 31st July, England’s Lionesses ended 56 years of hurt by overcoming the goliath task of beating Germany 2-1 in the European Championship final to finally bring football home.

When you’ve worked in a B2B PR agency for over 25 years, it’s easy to forget that the ‘turbulence’ we experience daily isn’t the norm for many. This is because every agency day is different, you never fully know what to expect, and deadlines can be ludicrously short.  Growing agencies like us deal with a lot of uncertainty. The biggest...
