North Wales digital agency up for top industry awards

Outwrite PR, a digital agency based in Mold, has been shortlisted for several major honours at the annual Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide awards.

The company, which took home the best integrated PR campaign title at the CIPR Cymru Wales awards last year, is up for a record four gongs this time round.

It’s been shortlisted for three awards in the Wales region, as well as one in the north west of England. The company’s video-based Facebook campaign for engineering firm Jones Bros has been recognised.

Viewed more than 17,000 times, the video is up for the best use of digital media and best STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) campaign – a company first.

As well as these honours, the firm has also been nominated for a bespoke trade media relations project it undertook with buying group Fairway Foodservice. It’s been noticed in the best corporate category.

In the North West region, the fast-growing PR and content marketing agency has been shortlisted for best issues and crisis communications campaign.

Tracy North, founder and managing director of the company, said: “We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for four awards at the CIPR awards.

“These awards are judged by our peers, so it’s particularly pleasing to have the agency’s work thought of highly by independent PR and marketing professionals.

“Outwrite has evolved into a fully-fledged digital PR agency and being shortlisted across four categories goes to show our expertise in different areas.

“We’re fortunate to work with brilliant clients who allows us to be creative to produce the best results.”

The news follows a run of awards successes for the agency in 2017. It’s shortlisted for best integrated communications campaign at the awards and best B2B integrated comms campaign at the Prolific North awards in Manchester.

Richard Ellison, marketing manager at Fairway Foodservice, said:“Outwrite has exceeded our expectations by securing dozens of pieces of trade coverage.

“The team has shown a real commitment to being our PR agency and as well as attending events, they has taken the time to get under the skin of our organisation.”
