Equinox and jamjar PR win big at Welsh CIPR PRide Awards

Welsh comms agencies Equinox and jamjar PR each took home four golds at the CIPR PRide Awards ceremony in Cardiff’s City Hall last week.

Equinox’s haul included the ‘Outstanding PR Consultancy’ prize and three awards for a campaign with Cadw, the Welsh Government’s environment service.

Launched on St David’s Day, the campaign brought a tale of two dragons to life through multi-channel storytelling and helped generate over £5 million for Cadw.

Jamjar PR took home two gold awards for #JoinCwmTaf, a campaign that boosted recruitment for nurses for Cwm Taf University Health Board.

BrandContent secured the prize for ‘Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy’, while Confused.com walked away with the ‘Outstanding In-House Public Relations Team’ prize.

John Wilkinson was named Wales’ ‘Outstanding Independent Practitioner’, while Elrha’s Liz Rawlins won the ‘Outstanding Young Communicator Award’.

Eoghan Mortell, the CIPR’s Cymru Wales chair, said: “It’s a huge encouragement to all of us involved in the PR industry in Wales to meet fellow professionals at the annual PRide awards and compare notes on the high-quality work that has been going on.”

He added: “As usual, there are plenty of really impressive campaigns and excellent examples of how PR is proving its worth in many sectors of the economy and society. Warm congratulations to all award winners and finalists”
