PR Company of the Year

Hope & GloryWinner: Hope & Glory

Although many established PR companies featured in this year’s shortlist, it was relative newcomer Hope & Glory that won 2013’s award. Started in late 2011, the company won £32,000 worth of drinks-related business in its first six months, which grew to over £150,000 by the end of the year. Among the campaigns from the company were Hops in a Box for Meantime Brewery and a Titanic-inspired Scotch for The Glenrothes. The judges were impressed by the rapid growth of the company – which now comprises 10 employees – and the results of its campaigns.

They also appreciated the personal nature of Hope & Glory’s awards pitch, which conveyed the sense of team spirit at the company.
