Consumer PR and social media agency Smoking Gun PR is celebrating being shortlisted in five categories the PRCA endorsed Golden Hedgehog awards.

Not only will the Spinningfields firm be defending its current Best Small Agency and Best Consumer Campaign crowns but it is also battling it out for the Best Social Media Campaign, Use of Research and Media relations categories.

This continues purple patch for the agency which places a firm emphasis on delivering effective work with proven results under its ‘ingenious PR’ banner. 2013 saw twelve new client wins and the agency double its headcount and already 2014 has seen the announcement of a new six figure account with more to be revealed.

Agency managing director Rick Guttridge says:

“Awards are the icing on the cake for a job well done by our team. Ensuring client’s business objectives are properly supported via marketing communications is always our priority but after sweating blood and the occasional tear in the pursuit of results, we know how to let our hair down when success does come our way.

“These latest award shortlists are another sign that the agency continues to grow in the right direction, particularly as the clients concerned have all been recent wins, delivering further proof of the success of our approach to modern PR.”
