The countdown is on for this year’s Midlands Marketing Awards, now that the finalists have been announced and Birmingham PR agency WPR has been shortlisted for three awards.

In the ‘most effective work’ categories, WPR is in the running for best consumer campaign. While in the ‘most effective people’ categories, WPR is shortlisted as agency team of the year, and WPR’s managing director Jane Ainsworth is a finalist for marketing leader of the year.

Jane said: “We’re big believers in championing the incredible work that’s being done in Birmingham and across the Midlands. When WPR was founded over 30 years ago, the aim was always to deliver world-class work from the heart of the UK.

“We love the ethos of the Midlands Marketing Awards which put the focus firmly on creativity, innovation and work that delivers tangible results.”

Judged by some of the Midlands’ most respected marketing professionals, from leading organisations and educational institutions, the winners will be announced in September.
