More PRCA Dare Award success for See Media

Sara-Anne Mills-Bricknell

See Media has won another PRCA Dare Award and was nominated for a further two in the ceremony for the 2021 Midlands finalists.


Sara-Anne Mills-Bricknell, our Senior Account Manager, won Rising Star of the Year, beating some stiff competition.


See Media was one of the top three Small Consultancies of the Year and was also shortlisted for the second year running with our client Stonewater in the Charity/Not-for-Profit category. This year our entry focused on Stonewater’s work with a range of local partners ‘Tackling Veteran Homelessness’ through a 19-home self-build project in Leominster, Herefordshire.

‘Incredible talent’

Sara-Anne, who joined See Media in May 2019 as a Senior Account Executive, was described by the PRCA Midlands judges as ‘an incredible talent’. Besides overseeing several clients, Sara-Anne has led our transformation to becoming the leading podcast provider in the housing sector and is the chair of the CIPR’s podcast editorial board.


Earlier this year, Sara-Anne mentored See Media’s first ever intern – a scheme that she was integral in setting up and ensuring was a paid position – whilst also studying the PR Academy’s Public Affairs diploma.


Sara-Anne, said: “I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities and support I’ve been given by every member of the See Media team over the last two years. It was a huge compliment to be nominated for Rising Star of the Year and I still can’t quite believe the result!”

Podcast expertise

Wendie Gardiner, Head of Communications at Stonewater, said: “Sara-Anne has a great, fun personality yet remains highly professional. She is very proactive, experienced, communicative and responsible in situations requiring urgent decisions and is also not afraid to challenge our thinking. Her work to help launch our ‘On the Air’ podcast channel is a perfect example of her creativity and desire to go the extra mile to ensure we get the most out of our content.”


Stuart Macdonald, Managing Director of See Media, said: “Sara-Anne has been a brilliant addition to the See Media team. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her ideas are always creative and aimed at getting the best for our clients. Despite the challenging backdrop of the past 12 months, Sara-Anne has thrived, taking on greater responsibility and becoming a fantastic example of a modern PR professional. She is every inch a Rising Star and we could not be more proud that she has won this PRCA award.”
