The CIPR Excellence Awards

Yet more recognition for The View's work.

Hot on the heels of once again passing the PRCA's quality assurance gold standard, the CMS accreditation - and our FIVE CIPR PRide awards at the end of last year, we were out celebrating again last night.

The View was finalist (one of only six in the UK) for Outstanding Small Consultancy in the CIPR Excellence awards at the Park Lane Hilton last night. The absolute top of the tree. Phewee! (By the way, which clever clogs at the CIPR decided to hold their awards on a Monday night?)  And the hottest night of the year to boot.  So hot in fact that some of the team nipped out for a breather and missed the official snap.  Hence, seen here: a View Lite gathering.

Here's to the next awards!

Shortlisted for five CIPR PRide awards, including Outstanding Small Consultancy

We are tremendously proud that The View has once again been recognised by our industry peers as being one of the best of the best in the PR industry.

At the tender age of two and a half, we have been shortlisted for Outstanding Small Consultancy category in the CIPR (Chartered Institute of Marketing) Excellence Awards 2012, one of just six agencies nationwide.

It took into account our work for Pernod Ricard UK, Berkeley Group, TeamSport and others, plus all-round excellence in business and management standards.

Companies and individuals for the awards have been drawn from 700 entries, with winners announced at the Excellence Awards black tie dinner at the Park Lane Hilton on 28 May. The awards dinner, now in its 27th year, is the most prestigious annual celebration of the public relations profession with up to 900 guests attending from across the industry.

Jane Wilson, CEO of the CIPR, said on Friday: “To make the CIPR Excellence Awards shortlist is a statement of achievement for any organisation. The sheer number of high quality entries received this year, especially when things are still pretty tough out there economically, is testament to a thriving industry. There really is no greater recognition of professionalism, creativity and hard work than to reach the final stages of the Excellence Awards.”

This shortlisting follows hot on the heels of our Outstanding Small Consultancy gold award (and string of other accolades – see news reported earlier) at the CIPR PRide awards (SE) in Brighton last November.
