Last night we had the pleasure of rubbing shoulders with the 'creme de la creme' of the PR world in the North, as we were the regional sponsor of the inaugural CIPR PRide awards for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. This year it was held at the Aspire in Leeds, amazing venue, it certainly had the wow factor! The evening started just how we like them to with a champagne reception, we then took to our seats as the award ceremony commenced, presented by ITVs Gaynor Barnes.
We sponsored the Outstanding Young Communicator of Year, our very own Laura Mallinson presented the award to a very talented Katie Mallinson (no relation, we promise!)
Umpf scooped up the big award of the night as they were crowned Most Outstanding Consultancy of the Year. A huge congratulations to all of the PR pros that won awards last night - there's a lot of talent in Yorkshire and it's great to see so much fantastic working being done!
Here is the shortlist.
