Why clients and employees love attending The PRmoment Awards
Why winning a PRmoment Awards helps raise the profile of your business
Winners of previous awards have realised significant business benefits through their wins. Here's what they say:
Catherine Turner, Head of PR – Insurance, Funeralcare and Legal Services Communications, The Co-op
"The Co-op were really pleased to win three PRmoment Awards in 2017, including In-House Team of the Year. To be judged by your peers is a really important way of bench-marking our work against the best in the sector and to gain recognition by winning three awards is a great way of recognising and rewarding the hard work of the PR/Comms Team at The Co-op."
Andy Smith, Head of Media Relations, Santander UK plc
"It is good discipline to enter awards, not only does it develop rigour in the team with regards to the setting (and achieving) of objectives, but it also helps demonstrate the value the function adds."
Sarah Samee, Assistant Director – External Affairs, Cifas
"Winning both the Integrated and Media Relations Campaign categories at the PR Moments Awards for Data to Go was an epic start to the year for our small team, it really is absolutely wonderful to be recognised amongst our peers."
Claire Risino, Campaigns Manager, Canal and River Trust
"We were delighted to be included in the shortlist of excellent entries and it was a very proud moment for the Canal & River Trust to win the Most Innovative Use of Digital & Social Media for our Water Safety video. It’s important to us that the serious message of water safety is talked about by teenagers and young people so we worked hard to take the message to them on social media.
As a charity with a small budget and limited resources for this campaign, it was such an achievement to see our creative ideas recognised in the industry and it’s definitely raised our creative confidence as well as our profile among agencies. We’re looking forward to entering the awards again next year!"
Mandy Sharp, Founder, Tin Man
"We’ve won a number of PRmoment Awards over the last two years and it has definitely helped us build our agency profile, prove our credibility and generate new business leads. In fact, one major automotive brand called me recently saying he had attended the PRmoment Awards and kept seeing Tin Man going up and winning awards, so thought we were either bloody good or sponsoring the event! He then looked us up, liked what he saw and called us to take part in a pitch. Job done! (Note: Tin Man weren’t a sponsor!)"
Peter Bowles, co-CEO & co-Founder, Dynamo PR
"Winning the PRmoment Award for best technology agency 2016 was a massive way to start the year at Dynamo! We’ve always been an innovation led agency and had been spending months building a VR team, so it was fantastic for that hard work to be acknowledged by the formidable team of judges on the night. Ben and the PRmoment team have really grown these awards to be one of the biggest nights in the industry, one that reflects the new breed of comms agencies pushing the boundaries of what is possible"
Richard Moss, Chief Executive, Good Relations
“It was fantastic to recognised for our 50 Shades of Grey campaign for B&Q, at the PRmoment awards. The buzz it created amongst the team and our clients was amazing”.
James Endersby, CEO, Opinium Research.
"Opinium have been the headline sponsors of The PRmoment Awards for the last two years – and we absolutely love it. The atmosphere at the PRmoment Awards is special – people really enjoy themselves but at the same time the awards clearly mean a huge amount to those who win, and it’s great to celebrate the very best the PR industry has to offer! From a sponsors perspective the production values of the awards are first class, the PRmoment team are great to deal with and it’s a cost effective way of promoting our brand, both online to PRmoment’s readers but also to over 1000 PR people at the awards. Opinium is delighted to be sponsoring the awards again on 2017”
Graham Goodkind, Chairman & Founder, Frank PR
"Winning the Best Large Agency of the Year PRmoment Award was a lovely validation of our progress and a real fillip to the whole company. Everyone worked so hard this year and put so much in: this award is a lovely way of everyone getting something back."
James Gordon-MacIntosh, Joint Founder, Hope&Glory
"Winning at the PRmoment Awards is a reward for the teams that delivered the work, the clients that signed it off and supported it and for an agency's or an in-house team's reputation as a whole. They're also an opportunity to measure yourself against the best the industry has to offer and see whether your work is up to the mark."
Nicky Marks. Managing Director, Censuswide
“Censuswide are proud to sponsor the PRmoment Awards every year. It’s a fantastic event and a great opportunity to catch up with all our friends and clients in the PR world. Above all, it is a pleasure to celebrate the industry’s hard work and achievements over the year. We look forward to sponsoring the awards for years to come”.
Helen Lacey, Director of External Communications, Barclaycard
"We were absolutely over the moon to pick up two PR Moment Awards this year. To receive this recognition from the industry for our hard work is simply fantastic. We had a brilliant time at the awards, Ben and the team should be proud of hosting a top class event.”
Bibi Hilton, Managing Director UK, Golin
"The euphoria amongst the team as our name was read out barely subsided all night. It meant so much to be recognised by our peers, especially as the PRmoment Awards are growing in stature with every year. To win such an accolade makes the team walk taller but it also has a noticeable halo effect on our brand – it’s a win win!"
Elayne Phillips, Defra
"What an honour it was to have won a PRmoment award in 2015! The team worked extremely hard on proving the value of Government communications so to gain recognition from a third party that prides itself on independent expert judging was incredible. The competition was stiff with over 650 entries so credit for the team’s work really meant something. And it wasn’t just the evaluation team that benefited, the wider communications team and the Department overall took pride in this win.
We don’t always take the time to showcase our good work and I would encourage everyone in communications to look at the PRmoment award categories and submit an entry – it’s really worth it – good luck everyone!"
Peter Bowles, co-CEO at Dynamo
"Winning Best Media relations and small agency at the PRMoment awards really kicked our year off at Dynamo to the best possible start. What I respect about Ben and the team is that they reward campaigns and agencies really looking at the future of PR. They do not reward 'stuck in the mud' so-called creative - the same old ideas which we're sick to death of within this industry. They tell it like it is and, other than copious amounts of alcohol, what more do you want from an award ceremony than that?"
Nadia Burgess, Marketing Executive, Pitman Training Group
"We were extremely honoured to win the award for best ‘In-House Team of the Year’ at the PR Moment Awards 2015. Winning the award paid great testament to the hard work the team carries out at Pitman Training, and the importance we place on the power of PR. As a franchisor, the award was the perfect accolade and a trusted ‘stamp of authority’ to highlight the quality of work we carry out and the results we deliver, to our current network of franchise partners, prospective business partners and stakeholders."
