PRCA accolades for Lansons and Vodafone teams

Lansons Communications was named consultancy of the year at this year’s PRCA & FrontLine Awards.

PRCA director general Francis Ingham cited Lansons’ financial performance, strong focus on new business and loyal staff.

Vodafone’s chief executive Arun Sarin was named business communicator of the year.

ING Media picked up the campaign of the year gong for its ‘Hull – The Forgotten City’ campaign. It was praised for raising awareness of severe flooding in Hull, which at the time was ­being overlooked in the press due to the appointment of a new Prime Minister and terrorist ­attacks in London and Glasgow.

Other big winners on the night were Nelson Bostock Communications, which took home two trophies. The agency won the consumer award for its London Dungeons summer media campaign, ‘An Extremis Success’, and the people development award in recognition of the agency being a good place to work.

Mischief PR also won two prizes, picking up the media rela­tions award for the launch of ­National Geographic Kids magazine and the creative award for its awareness campaign, ‘Gig of the Dump’, for Channel 4’s reality show Dumped.
