PR award for Chakrabarti

Liberty director Shami Chakrabarti was this week named Communicator of the Year at the 2008 PRWeek Awards.

Chakrabarti scooped the award after a busy year of campaigning against the erosion of civil liberties. She has been one of the key voices against the proposed 42-days detention without charge measure, which was struck down by the House of Lords last week.

Other winners included Conservative Party comms director Andy Coulson, who was named PR Professional of the Year. Meanwhile, Borkowski picked up Campaign of the Year for Bring Back Wispa, and M&C Saatchi, Sport & Entertainment won Specialist Consultancy of the Year.
