NEWCASTLE-based O PR has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2017 PR Week Awards in the Best Agency outside London category.
After already scooping a Best Places to Work Award in 2016 the agency set its sights on an award which represents best-in-class client work, business strategy, investment in people and agency culture.
The Ouseburn firm was revealed as one of the top five agencies in the UK outside of London.
Owner and managing director at O, Kari Owers said: “We are extremely excited to be flying the flag for the immense talent which exists outside of London. Here in the North East the creative and digital sector is thriving – we truly believe we’re the region to watch!
“Our company ethos is all around taking local brands national and national brands local – so this award is really important to us as it celebrates our strategy as a business.
“I’m not only thrilled that our talented team is being recognised for its work but for our innovative clients who are, of course, a huge part of our success.
“Our vision as an agency is to deliver excellence when it comes to our work but also to create an inspiring, challenging and fun place to work which is something I am personally very proud of. We are really excited to see what the future holds for O.”
Each shortlisted agency at the PR Week Awards faced a panel interview and presentation with a judging panel. The overall winner will be revealed at the awards evening on Wednesday 18 October in London.
