PR Awards 2011
Gold and Silver PR Award Success as Holyrood Partnership Lands Outstanding Young Communicator Accolade
THE HOLYROOD PR team celebrated a double success in 2011, picking up gold and silver accolades at the Scottish PR industry’s annual awards ceremony.
Holyrood PR and social media experts were nominated for three awards at the CIPR PRide Awards 2011 in Glasgow and were rewarded by a panel of PR experts in two out of the three categories.
Account Manager Laura Berry was the biggest winner on the Holyrood PR team, scooping the prestigious Young Communicator of the Year title.
The gold award recognises the best PR practitioners in Scotland aged below 30 and was the culmination of her work over the past year managing social media and PR strategies for clients such as DFDS Seaways and Vittoria.
It was the second time the sought-after award was won by a member of the Holyrood PR team. In 2006 the Outstanding Young Communicator Award was claimed by David Connor, while he worked at our Edinburgh public relations agency.
Earlier in the night, Holyrood Partnership was also rewarded with a silver award in the Best Use of Social Media category, in recognition of the successful Facebook and Twitter campaigns that it ran for the Vittoria and La Favorita restaurants.
The team also celebrated being shortlisted in the Best Consumer Relations category for its sterling work in promoting Edinburgh’s boutique wine bar, Divino Enoteca.
In addition to the official awards, Holyrood PR team proved no slouches in the current affairs quiz , beating 30 other tables of Scotland’s leading PR professionals in a series of general knowledge and current affairs questions to win a round of champagne.
