A golden night for Aberfield with four awards

Posted on November 18, 2016 by

Aberfield celebrates four PR awards

It’s a day of celebration at Aberfield, as last night we scooped an incredible four awards – including the coveted title of Outstanding PR Consultancy of the Year – in the CIPR’s PRide Awards 2016.

In naming Aberfield the best agency in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, the judges praised our “commitment to CPD, robust measurement and excellent client servicing”. They were also impressed by our strong client retention and “drive to use PR to change attitudes and behaviours”.

To make it a truly memorable night, we also won:

Outstanding Small PR Consultancy, with the judges recognising our commitment to audience insight and the “emphasis on changing consumer attitudes and behaviours, rather than just promoting awareness”.

Best Corporate and Business Communications Campaign – for our work in helping influence conference and events bookers for QHotels. The judges praised the “impressive media strategy and strong layers of innovative tactics, used to excellent effect to deliver defined results. The research was thorough and delivered insights that fed the creative process.”

Best Arts, Culture or Sport Campaign – for our work on the World Triathlon Series Leeds event this year. The judges said it was “a very strong campaign, demonstrating some innovative cross-sectoral thinking – art to promote sport – in order to achieve some very impressive results.”

And, just to top things off, we also won a Silver award for our ‘Magical Leeds’ campaign for LeedsBID.

It’s the first time an agency has won both PRide Consultancy of the Year accolades in the same year, and to also be recognised for three individual client campaigns made it a Champagne-filled night for the whole team.
