01 Oct Colchester Firm Wins Three PR Gongs
Leading Colchester-based lifestyle PR agency, Big Wave PR, has won three prestigious CIPR PRide Awards (Anglia, Thames and Chiltern) for their campaigns with the Royal British Legion and Papa John’s Pizza.
Hilary Collins, Founder and Managing Director, Big Wave PR says: “We’re thrilled to have won three awards! The team has worked extremely hard and I’m delighted that their creativity, tenacity and expertise has been recognised.”
The award-winning consultancy won Gold for Best Not-for-Profit Campaign and a Silver for Best Consumer Campaign for their work with the travel arm of the Royal British Legion, Remembrance Travel. This was the third year in a row the agency has won the ‘Best Consumer’ title. Their campaign for Remembrance Travel has been so successful that more D Day veterans than ever before – funded by LIBOR fines – have headed back to the Normandy beaches in a pilgrimage of remembrance.
Big Wave PR also won Gold for ‘Best Event’ for their experiential marketing campaign with pizza giant, Papa John’s. Here the agency re-created the UK’s favourite pizza, a pepperoni, out of jumpers for Papa John’s support of Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
