The finalists in each category are:

Medium agency (30 to 99 employees): Citypress, Forster, W.
Small agency (two to 29 employees): Dynamo, Man Bites Dog, Manifest.

Each finalist will now face a panel interview to decide who will win the gold, silver and bronze awards for their categories, with judges from PRWeek, the PRCA and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
The results will be announced next month at a drinks reception for finalists held at the Westminster office of PR recruitment consultancy Ellwood Atfield, the reception sponsor.
