New nominations for Smoking Gun PR


That’s right, we have some fantastic news as more of our work has been recognised for its quality, with no less than two campaigns we have worked on getting shortlisted for a couple of coveted titles. So then, here are the details.
First up our efforts in the world of social media have been picked up by the panel at the Some Comms Awards. Now in its second year, the ceremony will be held on October 19th in our own fair city of Manchester, while the nominations take in the best in the communications business from across the UK, celebrating maverick, groundbreaking and forward thinking social media agencies, including ourselves with Panda Liquorice’s ‘Giving Nasties the Blues’ project being put forward for the Best Low Budget Campaign.
And, secondly, we assisted Journey 9 on a campaign for Jaguar last year that turned quite a few heads at the time, and now it’s back to grab a little more attention with a nomination at the National Business Awards in the Excellence in Marketing category, which is great. As How Do reported earlier this month, there are a number of North West firms shortlisted in the nationwide competition, so we wish them all the best (while keeping fingers crossed for ourselves, and the aforementioned partner). It’s all Smoking Gun proof then, if it were needed, that whether it’s a luxury car manufacturer or a food client with a smaller requirement we’re capable of pulling out all the stops to deliver real public relations expertise that works, whatever the concept.
