CIPR doffs hat to Smoking Gun


As you all know we’re really not ones to blow our own trumpet, unless of course it’s particularly necessary to play a tune. One such suitable instance might be if the professional body for the public relations industry shortlisted the team for a wide range of award categories, evidencing our wide ranging skill set.
Well, we’re delighted to announce that this has just happened, with the CIPR putting forward Smoking Gun PR as a contender for success at this year’s PRide Awards. Better yet, the good people on the judging panel have deemed our work worthy of recognition in no less than nine disciplines, including Not-For-Profit, Best Campaign £10,000 and Under, Consumer Relations, Best Use of Media Relations (twice), Integrated Communications, Best Digital Campaign, Outstanding Small Consultancy, and Best Use of Photography or Design.
An impressive variety, with more nominations for client work than any other PR agency shortlisted this year there couldn’t be a better advertisement for the quality and breadth of our campaigns and projects. Of course we’ll have to wait until winter to find out how we rank against the other organisations in the running, but with endeavours in the worlds of Facebook, Twitter, online press, print media, and creative marketing all receiving the nod, it’s safe to say we’re delighted with our achievements, not least as a small, young consultancy, and eager to continue proving our staff do much more than merely talking the talk.
