CIPR Success is “gob-smacking”

Leeds PR Agency. Award winning PR AgencyUmpf’s first foray into the CIPR PRide awards was a successful one – we bagged a collection of PR awards.

The CIPRs recognise excellence and achievement in public relations and communications – ‘PRoof of success in the PR industry’ according to our industry body.

We had eight campaigns shortlisted – no mean feat in itself – and collected four gongs which highlights the strength of the PR talent within the agency.

We’re particularly pleased with the CIPR judges’ comments on our ‘Royal Fridge’ PR stunt: a “gob-smacking volume of positive media coverage and social media buzz”.

And kudos to Umpf’s Jon Priestley who won the Outstanding Young Communicator award.

Special mention to our friends at business-to-business PR agency The Right Agency who won Gold for the best Corporate and Business Communications campaign.
