As well as campaign categories in specialist areas spanning B2B, digital and social media, and media relations, WPR is in the running to collect both the team culture and community and large agency of the year awards.

Rounding off the shortlist, senior media relations manager Gideon Casey – recently named young media and marketing professional of the year by Business Insider – has been included in the rising star category.

Jane Ainsworth, managing director, said: “While the campaigns we’ve been shortlisted for this year are varied in terms of industry and discipline, they all demonstrate the exceptional results that PR and social media can deliver when we combine insight and imagination.

“It’s really rewarding to see our team’s ability to consistently devise commercially intelligent, creative campaigns recognised by the PRCA Dare judges. We’re looking forward to celebrating all the region’s talent at the awards ceremony this summer.”
