North Wales Digital PR Agency Shortlisted Four Times at Major Awards


A Mold-based digital PR agency has been shortlisted for four major industry awards at the annual Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide awards.

Outwrite PR, which scooped gold for best integrated PR campaign at the CIPR Cymru Wales awards last year, is up for a company-record four gongs this time round.

The agency has been shortlisted for three awards in the Wales region, and one in the north west of England region.

The agency’s video-based Facebook campaign for Ruthin-based civil engineering firm Jones Bros was viewed more than 17,000 times, and is up for best use of digital and best STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) campaign.

A bespoke trade media relations project for buying group Fairway Foodservice is up against four others in the best corporate and business communication campaign category.

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

Outwrite’s founder and managing director Tracy North 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 continues a run of awards successes for the agency in 2017, with Outwrite also 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.”
