We all a bit bleary eyed here at Skout PR this morning after a night out partying with many of the North West’s leading PR consultancies at the 2014 CIPR Pride Awards.
The Great Gatsby themed awards ceremony, the largest regional event outside of London took place at Manchester’s Midland Hotel and celebrated the fantastic achievements of the North West’s creative PR talent. There were a raft of awards categories including best event, best use of social media, best technology campaign and best use of media relations.
We were shortlisted in the outstanding small consultancy category and after being awarded the silver prize last year, we had high hopes for the gold award this time around. Unfortunately, we weren’t the lucky recipients of the award last night, instead it went to fashion and beauty consultancy, Label PR.
The big winners of the night were the in-house PR team at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital who came away with three awards.
In spite of us not picking up an award, a great night was had by all and congratulations to all the winners. However, if they’d been an award for agency with the best moves on the dance floor, Skout PR would have undoubtedly taken the top spot!
