Mold-based digital PR agency Outwrite has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide awards.

Its head of digital Anthony Bullick is up for outstanding young communicator of the year in the CIPR Cymru region.

Anthony, 29, is joined by four others on the shortlist for the award, which recognises outstanding individuals under 30 in the PR industry.

One of just 41 CIPR accredited practitioners in Wales, Anthony is a monthly columnist for the Daily Post. He is also the company’s lead digital trainer delivering workshops and seminars across Wales and Cheshire.

Anthony, who was also shortlisted for young professional of the year for the North, Scotland and Nothern Ireland region at the annual PRmoment.com awards earlier this year, said: “It’s a fantastic feeling to be on the shortlist for this award.

“I’m lucky in that I am in a career that I love and feel passionate about, as well as having brilliant support from everyone here at Outwrite.

“This achievement recognises their ability and success as much as it does mine.”

Anthony finds out if he has been successful at the CIPR Cymru awards ceremony at City Hall, Cardiff on 16 October.

Outwrite managing director, Tracy North, said: “This recognition for Anthony does not come as a surprise.

“During his three years at Outwrite he has consistently demonstrated both a willingness to learn and an ability to carry out PR and reputation management for our clients to a high standard.

“Our fingers will be crossed on the evening of the ceremony.”
