Another PR Awards ceremony, another incredible performance from Taylor Herring. The creative agency picked up six awards at last night’s PRCA National Awards 2018, adding to the 21 wins and highly commendeds they’ve already achieved this year.
Other big winners from the night include the small, medium and large consultancies of the year, awarded to Talker Tailor Trouble Maker, Fourtold and Hope&Glory respectively.
There’s also a special mention to the winner of the Vuelio-sponsored Public Sector, Value for Money Awards, won by the agency Kindred for its Invisible People – Telling the World About Modern Slavery campaign and the In-house team at MHRA for its FakeMeds campaign.
Tin Man, the agency that joined Vuelio for the How to create an award-winning campaign II webinar, was highly commended in two categories, including one for its #ISeeMore campaign with the IET.
Across the night, 42 winners were announced in 30 categories – the full list can be viewed online.
The Awards are a celebration of both the industry and the PRCA. Francis Ingham, director general of the PRCA, proudly announced that the association has welcome 222 new corporate members in 2018.
He also made the call for fewer industry bodies, praising the decisions of the MAAG, ICCO, LG Comms and the APPC to join with the PRCA. He said: ‘We can best stand up for our industry if our industry has one clear voice. There is a need and a desire for collaboration and consolidation of membership bodies. There are quite simply too many small tents. There needs to be one big one.
‘The PRCA tent can and must and will grow bigger in the best interests of our industry. And we will work relentlessly over the coming years to achieve just that. So, here’s my big offer – come with us, and together we will make our industry even greater.’
For those in the room, the rewards were clear, but particularly for one agency. Welcome to 2018: the year of Taylor Herring.
Vuelio were delighted to sponsor the PRCA National Awards 2018, particularly because it gave us the opportunity to make cup phones – check out the team from Taylor Herring making good use of them:
