Stockport is star council at CIPR awards

Stockport Council wiped the floor at this year's CIPR Local Government Group awards, clinching four gongs, including the Communicators of the Year title.

The metropolitan borough scooped Best Internal Communications, Best Leaflet and Best Media Relations.

Its internal comms drive ‘Healthwise challenge' aimed to raise staff awareness of wellbeing initiatives. Judge and Department for Transport head of strategic comms Nick Dourt said: ‘Stockport had a consistently high-quality level of entries.'

The Young Communicator award went to Wolverhampton City Council marcoms officer Shelly Walton.

Westminster took the Best Publication award for its ‘Park Right' guide. Calderdale Council won Best A-Z of Services, and the South Wales Police Authority won Best Consultation Campaign for ‘spend our money'.

The PRWeek-sponsored ‘best use of design or photography' went to Southwark for its ‘art on a cart' programme -  transforming council refuse vehicles into mobile art galleries. Sutton Council won PR on a shoestring, Warwickshire and Southwark jointly won Best Civic Newspaper.
