Harrogate PR agency shortlisted in two awards programmes

Harrogate PR agency Acceleris has been shortlisted in two awards programmes celebrating excellence in communications.

The firm has been nominated in the inaugural International Building Press (IBP) Communications Awards, as well as named twice in the Public Relations Consultants Association’s (PRCA) Dare Awards.

Shortlisted for the ‘PR Consultancy Team of the Year’, Acceleris has been nominated in the IBP Communications Awards for its work promoting the role of the National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) whose members manage more than 70,000 council houses around England.

In 2012, Acceleris devised and implemented an integrated campaign to mark ‘a decade of achievement’ for the NFA.

The Dare Awards are organised by the professional body that represents the PR industry in the UK, the PRCA, and showcases effective communication techniques and campaigns from professionals nationwide.

Acceleris has been shortlisted in the ‘Innovation and Integration’ category for the work it has done with vehicle tracking business RAM Tracking.

Acceleris has also been named in the ‘Campaign Challenges’ category for the support it provides to the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organisations (NFFO), the body representing fishermen’s groups, individual fishermen and producer organisations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The agency provided crisis communications support to deflect attacks in the media from a powerful campaign organised by heavyweight NGOs and celebrity fronted TV programmes.

Accleris managing director Peter Davenport said: “Being recognised by professionals within our own industry is a testament to the high quality work we produce at Acceleris.

“That it is in two very different categories also shows the scope of skills the team possesses.

“We’re also delighted on the NFAs behalf that the ‘Decade of Achievement’ campaign – and hence their contributions – have been shortlisted as a finalist in the new and important IBP Awards.”

These latest nominations follow the agency being named twice in three months as ‘Large Agency of the Year’, first in the UK Public Sector Communications Awards and then, in January this year, in the Golden Hedgehog Awards also run in association with the PRCA.
