Ian Beaumont, Bowel Cancer UK's director of comms, was named Public Affairs Freelancer of the Year for the second year in a row.
Roger Majerski, Xchangeteam's public affairs expert said, 'For so niche an organisation as Bowel Cancer UK to punch so far above its weight is testimony to Ian's brave new style of public affairs campaigning, integrating media relations, harnessing third party advocates and bringing powerful case studies before decision makers.'
Meanwhile Vikki Rimmer picked up the PR & Communications Freelancer of the Year award. Rimmer was one of eleven finalists.
The category judge and last year's winner Rona Levin said: 'The changes brought about by Vikki's advice, coupled with her skill and creativity, enabled her to deliver a high-impact media campaign on a level never-before experienced by the Spelling Society.'
The Xchangeteam Freelancer of the Year Awards are now in their fifth year. PRWeek sponsored the Public Affairs and PR & Communications categories.
