9th August 2012
We’re absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted in the category of Outstanding Small Consultancy for the third year running as we were up against some stiff competition from other agencies not just in Lincolnshire but across the whole of Yorkshire. “We’re really looking forward to finding out whether or not we’ve won, although the standard of entries is always exceptionally high and it’s a real honour just to have been shortlisted.
A Lincoln-based PR agency is among some of the best in the UK according to the awards shortlist revealed by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) today (25th July).
Shooting Star PR has been shortlisted in the Outstanding Small Consultancy category in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire at this year’s CIPR PRide Awards. This category recognises the achievements, performance and excellent work of small consultancies with five employees or fewer.
More than 1,000 entries were received from freelancers, consultancies and in-house teams across twelve UK regions and nations.
Director of Shooting Star PR Kate Strawson said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted in the category of Outstanding Small Consultancy for the third year running as we were up against some stiff competition from other agencies not just in Lincolnshire but across the whole of Yorkshire.
“We’re really looking forward to finding out whether or not we’ve won, although the standard of entries is always exceptionally high and it’s a real honour just to have been shortlisted.”
CIPR CEO Jane Wilson MCIPR also commented: “The CIPR PRide Awards celebrate the best PR and communications campaigns and teams from the profession across the UK. To be shortlisted for a CIPR PRide Award demonstrates exemplary achievement, impact and value – immediately putting your work in the spotlight.
“The sheer number of high-quality entries received this year, especially when things are still pretty tough out there economically, is testament to a thriving nationwide industry. Congratulations for reaching this stage and the best of luck for the awards presentation evenings.”
The judging process for the PRide Awards is rigorous with a national panel of industry experts assessing the shortlisted entries and choosing the winners. One of the 2012 Chairs of Judges, Gill Dandy FCIPR, Senior Consultant at The Centre for Strategy and Communication, will assist in ensuring a fair and consistent judging process.
