It’s been an exciting week for the PR community! Many of us were avidly anticipating the shortlist for this year’s CIPR PRide Awards on Monday, and when it was announced, Skout certainly had something to smile about…
We’re delighted to reveal that we’ve made it onto the shortlist for two awards: ‘integrated campaign’ and ‘STEM campaign’. Both were from our Journey to the Cloud campaign that we carried out for a cloud provider client.
Last year’s ceremony was an eventful night, and as always it was great to rub shoulders with other PR and comms pros from across the North West. But the highlight was of course scooping two awards: one gold and one silver. As a B2B PR agency, it was a good feeling to have our hard work recognised, and having two new awards grace our trophy cabinet means we have something to show for Skout’s tireless efforts. Fingers crossed our good luck stays with us into this year’s ceremony- it’s stiff competition though!
3rd November is firmly circled in our diaries, and we’re looking forward to a glitzy ceremony at Manchester’s Midland Hotel where we’ll be donning our finest attire. While I can’t guarantee that we’ll take any awards home with us, I can guarantee that we’ll be hitting the dancefloor with our best moves. Wish us luck, and be sure to come back in November to see how we get on!
