Smoking Gun picks up two prestigious industry awards


It’s always nice to feel appreciated. And, with a host of professional accolades now proudly hanging from our Quay Street HQ walls, it’s safe to say the work of staff here at this particular Manchester PR firm has been gaining some serious recognition of late.
Last Thursday- February 28th- saw our company claim another two trophies, this time during 2013’s Golden Hedgehog Awards ceremony, which was held at the Etihad Stadium in East Manchester. Thanks to Nissan Shows It Cares we picked up Consumer PR Campaign of the Year, meanwhile endeavours elsewhere were deemed good enough to win the coveted title of Small Agency of the Year, against some truly worthy and impressive contenders. Needless to say then, it’s certainly put a tangible spring in our step, which is fitting really, considering March’s arrival and the sudden onset of warmer weather. Here are a few more details on this most recent success story…
