Camden Town: Twitter campaign

Edinburgh Council comms officer Tina Sutherland has called for tourism comms budgets not to be cut during the Christmas period, dubbing it 'false economy'. In this week's column, Sutherland writes: 'Showcasing and differentiating towns as destinations brings real economic benefit for retail and tourism.' For the full column, go to prweek.com/uk.

Proskills, the sector skills council for the process and manufacturing sector, has appointed Bottle PR to raise its profile in the sector with national media and stakeholder relations campaigns, following a competitive tender.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is launching a national art competition for 11to 19-year-olds to express their vision of a world free from prejudice. National curriculum teaching packs have been produced to guide schools, pupil referral units and other groups that wish to explore the meaning of equality and human rights through art.

Camden Council has used Twitter to ask followers what they would do with £1,000, and the three best answers are now featuring on bus stop posters across the borough. It forms part of the council's ongoing 'love your local high street' campaign, supporting independent traders.
