Catapult Heading to Two PR & Marketing Award Finals
Lancashire-based PR consultancy, Catapult PR, is heading towards the second half of November with seven award nominations to its name, across two award schemes and many different disciplines.
The Blackpool public relations agency recently added two finalist shortlistings in the Northern Marketing Awards, to five shortlistings in the CIPR PRide Awards 2019. Its latest shortlistings are in the Northern Marketing Awards categories of Best Retail PR Campaign and Best Not-for-Profit PR Campaign.
The exciting PR work recognised in these categories was carried out for London-based kitchen recycling pioneer, The Used Kitchen Company, and the community celebration, Northumberland Day.
Catapult PR’s retail PR work for The Used Kitchen Company has seen it become an official ‘green hero’ and enjoy profiles in many national newspapers and magazines, from The Times and The Daily Mail, to Grand Designs and Your Home.
For Valentine’s Day 2019, Catapult innovatively created Lonely Hearts advertisements, as if written by used and ex-showroom display kitchens wanting love second time around, in the homes of a new appreciative owner.
The agency’s work for Northumberland Day saw it doing everything from launching a new mascot, to supporting new food and drink launches and organising a Match Box Memories initiative in schools and care homes.
Four of Catapult PR’s campaigns up for the honours in the CIPR PRide Awards were conducted for Northumberland Day, but the categories vary greatly. Catapult is shortlisted for Best Arts, Culture or Sport campaign, Best Not-for-Profit Campaign, Best Use of Social Media and Best Community Relations Campaign. Its fifth shortlisting is for its managing director, Jane Hunt.
Jane Hunt says, the fact that we are nominated for so many different types of work demonstrates our skills across diverse sectors and areas of marketing. Our geographical reach is also highlighted through nominations for work for clients based as far apart as North London and Northumberland. We currently have clients in nine different counties across the UK and also in two European countries – France and Italy. That’s pretty good going for a small regional PR agency in Lancashire, but down to our ongoing record of achievement, which now stretches over 21 years.”
