Media release: Scotland’s outstanding PR talent set to be showcased in Glasgow


THE outstanding creative work of Scotland’s PR industry will be recognised in Glasgow on October 5th as industry professionals gather for the annual Scotland PRide Awards.

More than  300 public relations professionals from over agencies and both public and private sector organisations will attend the ceremony organised by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) at the Radisson Blu Hotel in the city centre for 2017 edition of the event.

Shortlists have been published for 22 different awards and during the evening’s celebrations the winners will be announced – with categories including Best Not-for-Profit Campaign, Best Use of Photography or Design, Best Event, Outstanding Young Communicator, and Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy.

One of the hottest names in Scottish broadcasting will host the prestigious event, with STV and Heart Radio presenter, David Farrell, taking charge of proceedings as master of ceremonies.

Jenifer Stirton, chair of CIPR Scotland, said the fact that over 90 entries have been shortlisted this year underlines the quality of work being produced by Scotland’s PR professionals.

“We have seen some tremendous campaigns and individual projects submitted to the PRide Awards this year. It was difficult for the judges to whittle down such a quality field into the shortlists for each category never mind pick the winners, but that’s a nice problem to have and it means those who do pick up a coveted Gold Award know they really deserve it.”

Founded in 1948, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) is the Royal Chartered professional body for public relations practitioners in the UK and overseas.

With almost 1,000 members in Scotland, the CIPR advances professionalism in public relations by making its members accountable to their employers and the public through a code of conduct and searchable public register, setting standards through training, qualifications, awards and the production of best practice and skills guidance, facilitating Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and awarding Chartered Public Relations Practitioner status (Chart.PR).
