The countdown to the Golden Hedgehog Awards ceremony for companies in the North, Northern Ireland and Scotland that takes place on Thursday in Manchester, has begun.
The awards, which celebrate and recognise excellence in PR and communications across two regions in the UK, is presented by PRMoment in association with Cision UK.
A full-house with 230 PR professionals representing over 65 leading agencies and in-house teams is expected to attend. And going by the tone of the tweets leading up to the event (see below), the evening promises to be exciting.
The nominations are across 27 award categories including crisis management campaign of the year; best use of video, internal communications campaign of the year, new agency of the year and PR Moment’s Grand Prix Award.
The second leg of the awards ceremony will take place in London for companies in the south, midlands and Wales region on 20 March.
Less than a week to go until the #hedgehogawards – eight nominations means it’s going to be a boozy night regardless of the results!
