IoIC and CIPR PRide Awards

It was smiles all round at 44 after the team scooped prizes at both the CIPR Midlands PRide Awards and the IoIC National Awards.

We knew we were in for an exciting night. In case you missed it, here’s a round-up of our shortlistings:

– Our bold Pop Art style ‘Step Up’ campaign, which motivated employees at Boehringer Ingelheim to take action against developing Type 2 Diabetes, was a contender for best Internal Communications Campaign category at the CIPR Midlands PRide Awards.

– At the IoIC National Awards, Blue Print for Barclaycard was up for Best Feature Magazine (print), Tarmac One Online was in the running for Best News Channel (digital), and the A&O Alumni Yearbook was listed in the Best Channel for Members/Stakeholders/Volunteers category.

We were thrilled that not only was our Step Up Campaign a Silver PRide winner, but all three of our nominations at the IoIC Nationals received Awards of Excellence.

That’s no coincidence. Excellence is one of the five core values which underpins everything 44 does. To have the quality of our work recognised across such a wide range of categories – from our experiential and strategic campaign projects, through to our digital and print channels – made our success even more special.

Gemma Houltby, Partner – People and Operations, said: “Everyone at 44 gives their all to creating meaningful comms for our client organisations.

“Our three Awards of Excellence and silver PRide award show our industry peers also acknowledge the quality and expertise that go into our projects.

“I’m extremely proud of the awards we received, and particularly of the effort and excellence our team always puts into delivering this consistently high standard of work.”
