PRWeek UK Awards 2019: last chance to see the shortlist before the big night

The PRWeek UK Awards, the biggest date in the UK PR industry calendar, takes place tonight - have a look at the shortlist before the fun begins.

The expert jury panel of more than 100 leading global brands and agencies have decided which entrants are in with a chance of winning at the glitzy annual awards night, taking place at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House in Park Lane.

Hope&Glory tops this year’s 34-category shortlist with 14 nominations, while last year’s big winner with six awards, Taylor Herring, has 12 nominations this year.

Hope&Glory received four nominations in the category Marketing Communications: Sport and Entertainment, Arts and Media - each for a separate campaign.

Taylor Herring is shortlisted three times for its EasyJet Tackles Gender Bias in Pilot Recruitment campaign, and is jointly nominated three times with Weber Shandwick (10 nominations) for Iceland’s The Christmas Campaign That Never Was.

Elsewhere, The Romans has seven nominations, including Small Consultancy of the Year. Golin are also shortlisted seven times with three nominations each for their work on #TrackRecord and Twinkle Twinkle Little Heart.

Other agencies with more than one nomination include Tin Man (six), The Academy (six), W Communications (four), Newsfeed PR (four) and One Green Bean (four).

Huawei and Heathrow both made the In-House Team of the Year shortlist, and the 2018 Large Consultancy of the Year winner FleishmanHillard Fishburn also make this year's list.
