Mold-based digital PR agency Outwrite PR has been shortlisted for an industry gong at the prestigious awards.

The agency is up for best integrated communications campaign in the North, Scotland, and Northern Ireland region. The listing further cements the agency’s reputation for integrated PR.

Outwrite’s work with Jackson Fire & Security was selected for the shortlist, with the judges’ criteria recognising effective use of a variety of communication channels to achieve PR and business objectives.

During Outwrite’s ‘building a hot reputation’ campaign for the fire and security solutions firm, an increase in engagement was achieved across all of Jackson Fire’s platforms leading to an increase in tender invitations and contract wins.

It is the latest award success for Outwrite after it won best-integrated campaign at the Chartered Institute of PR’s CIPR Cymru Wales awards in 2016. Its work was also shortlisted at the CIPR North West awards, in Manchester, for best use of digital.

In 2015, Outwrite director Anthony Bullick was shortlisted for young professional of the year at the awards.

Outwrite managing director Tracy North said: “How PR agencies support organisations has changed drastically over the last few years.

“We have evolved into a fully fledged digital PR agency with integration at the heart of what we do.

“Our recent awards successes, coupled with some varied new contract wins, highlight our position as a leading integrated PR and SEO agency.

“Our fingers are crossed and all eyes will be on Manchester where we can hopefully add to our growing number of awards.”

Jackson Fire & Security managing director Steve Jackson said: “Outwrite really lifted our profile. It is definitely responsible for an increase in new customer inquiries.

“As the business owner, I know Outwrite’s brand building and PR activity works, as we are winning big contracts, when historically we wouldn’t have even been invited to tender.”

The awards take place at The Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel on 16 March 2017.

Outwrite, which was founded in 1994, specialises in reputation management, media relations, social media, and search engine optimisation (SEO).

Its clients include the Wales Air Ambulance, Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK, engineering, environmental and planning firm Caulmert, and housing association Grwp Cynefin.
