Weber Shandwick and Octopus Group were two of the big winners at the prestigious PRWeek UK Awards 2019, which took place on Tuesday night (15 October) during a gala ceremony at London's JW Marriott Grosvenor House.

The 2019 Awards once more celebrated the best campaigns, consultancies and teams over the past 12 months, as well as honouring Sue Garrard, former Unilever senior vice-president, sustainable business and comms, who was inducted into the PRWeek Hall of Fame.

Weber Shandwick picked up three awards, including Large Consultancy of the Year. Tech agency Octopus also bagged a hat-trick of accolades for its Tudder 'Tinder for Cows' campaign, for Hectare Agritech.

There were a brace of wins each for Golin, Taylor Herring, The Romans and Heathrow Airport's in-house comms team.
