20 Sep Big Wave PR Celebrates Hattrick at CIPR PRide Awards
Leading lifestyle and B2B PR agency, Big Wave PR, was awarded three gongs at the prestigious CIPR PRide Awards (Anglia, Thames and Chiltern) for their campaigns with the Royal British Legion.
The award-winning consultancy, based in Ardleigh, Colchester, walked off with gold awards for best Consumer Relations and Not-for-Profit Campaign and a silver for best Low Budget Campaign for their work with the travel arm of the Royal British Legion. Big Wave PR was tasked with raising awareness of the ‘unsung heroes’ of WWII, those who fought in the Italian campaign at Monte Cassino. The agency worked with national and regional media to get veterans to return on a journey of remembrance and boost awareness about the battle, which became a major turning point in bringing an end to the war.
Hilary Collins, Founder and Managing Director, Big Wave PR says: “We’re over the moon! We’ve won the Best Consumer award for the past five years in a row, it’s amazing! These awards are an incredible achievement, we’re very proud to work with the Royal British Legion and it’s an absolute honour to work with such inspiring veterans. The team works extremely hard and once again I’m delighted that their creativity, dedication and expertise has been recognised.”
The winners of the CIPR PRide 2019 Awards were announced at a gala awards event on 19 September at The Guildhall, Cambridge.
