What a night! Not one, not two, but THREE CIPR PRide Midlands Awards for See Media.
Despite some tough competition, we won two campaign gold awards with our clients Stonewater (opens in a new tab) and Campbell Tickell (opens in a new tab), as well as a silver award for Small PR Consultancy of the Year.
Our campaign with Stonewater, based on its incredible work tackling veteran homelessness (opens in a new tab) was named Not-For-Profit Campaign of the Year. While our ground-breaking digital CT Brief bi-monthly publication (opens in a new tab) with Campbell Tickell scooped the prize for Publication of the Year.
In praise for the tackling veteran homelessness campaign, the judges said: “An outstanding and thoughtful campaign that cut through conflicting media stories at a difficult time within the news agenda to deliver a valuable and uniting message.
“Good use of real case studies to promote the campaign in raising awareness of veteran homelessness and encourage support for Stonewater with its overarching objective of influencing other housing providers.”
‘Innovative and well-planned’
On the award-winning CT Brief digital publication, the judges said: “An innovative, well-planned and executed way to engage and raise brand awareness during COVID-19.”
The See Media team was also recognised with a silver award in the closely contested Best Small PR consultancy of the Year category. The award came after the team pulled together to support an increasing number of clients and ensure they continued to communicate well and creatively through some of the toughest times in the past 18 months.
Stuart Macdonald, Managing Director at See Media, said: “We are immensely proud to win our first CIPR Awards with our clients. These two campaigns have been very close to our hearts over the past year, so for them to achieve wider recognition from our peers is very special indeed for all of us on the team.”
Stuart added: “Praise must go to our clients – Stonewater and Campbell Tickell – for supporting our ideas on these campaigns. It was great to be able to celebrate – albeit virtually – with colleagues from both organisations and we can’t wait to do it for real in person next year!”
Commenting on the silver award for Best Small PR Consultancy of the Year award, Stuart said: “Every member of the team has gone above and beyond in the past 12 months to keep the show on the road. I couldn’t be more proud of their commitment and professionalism. Getting a silver award from the CIPR is the icing on the cake – we’ll be back going for gold in 2022!”
