PRCA DARE Awards South West and Wales winners announced

The winners of the PRCA DARE Awards South West and Wales have been announced, with Remarkable Group, Confused.com and Golley Slater among the victors.

The PRCA’s third DARE Awards, held at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel on Thursday night, recognised PR and comms excellence in eight categories.

Categories included consultancy of the year, in-house team of the year and a public sector and third sector award.

Consultancy of the year was awarded to Remarkable Group, with judges noting that the consultancy is "a company with real momentum, impressive growth and great client testimonials".

In-house team of the year went to Confused.com. Judges said: "It blew all of the others out of the water. The highly creative team produced some major campaigns this year and are deserved winners."

Golley Slater won the consumer relations award as well as the digital and social strategy award for its ‘Launching CityJet’ and ‘Name the Plane’ – both for Cardiff Airport – campaigns respectively. The judges especially noted "the ingenuity and finesse used in both campaigns, as well as their seamless integration into the wider field."

The public sector and third sector award was given to JBP Associates for its work on creating a national appeal for the transformation of Colston Hall into an international concert venue.

Francis Ingham, PRCA director general, said: "Congratulations to each of the winners of this year’s DARE Awards South West and Wales. The standard of entries was extremely high, and the judges undoubtedly had some tough decisions on their hands."

Forthcoming DARE Award ceremonies will recognise excellence in the North of England, the Midlands and the South East and East Anglia.
