Team Highlight is celebrating after being shortlisted for seven industry awards all within the same week, including ‘Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy’.

We’re very proud to be up for awards at both the CIPR South of England and Channel Islands PRide Awards and the national UK Agency Awards.

PRide-2016-Shortlist-buttonHighlight is one of six small agencies in the running for one of PRide’s biggest prizes, while the hard work of our consumer and corporate teams have been recognised too.

Our Pass Miffy On campaign for popular children’s character Miffy is up for ‘Best Use of Social Media,’ while our communications activity to build buzz for the 30th anniversary of Sylvanian Families hopes to win the ‘Consumer Relations Campaign’ award.

Highlight’s focused campaign to champion the unique active learning approach of innovative education provider MPCT has also been shortlisted for two categories: ‘Best Use of Media Relations’ and ‘Education Communications Campaign’. This follows hot on the heels of our recent national recognition at the CIPR Excellence Awards.
