For those not in the know, The Golden Hedgehog Awards are run by PRmoment.com and sponsored by both Cision and the PRCA. Branded “The world’s spikiest communication awards” they aim to celebrate excellence and recognise and reward outstanding campaigns and exceptional talent in the PR and Communications Industry in two regions across the UK – The North, Northern Ireland and Scotland, and The Midland’s Wales and The South.
The awards are judged by a panel of over 40 leading industry experts. In the campaign award categories the judges look for clear objectives, creative and effective implementation and tangible and demonstrable results in the campaign award categories.
