Anyone who’s worked in the PR industry for a while knows that awards shortlist announcements are a little like hanging around to pick up your A-Level results. There’s that sense of nervous anticipation mixed with the gut-wrenching fear that you might not have made the grade.
So it was with giddy glee that we bounced around the office for a bit upon receiving the news that we – alongside our long-time client Fujitsu – have been shortlisted for not one, but two of the most prestigious awards going. Our Dataheaven vs. Datageddon campaign (which you can read more about here) has taken its place on both the Marketing Week Engage Awards and the Holmes Report EMEA SABRE Awards shortlists. A finalist in the PR category with Marketing Week, Datageddon has also been recognised for excellence in the B2B Marketing Category by the Holmes Report.
Duncan Tait, Fujitsu UK & Ireland CEO noted that Datageddon was “one of [Fujitsu’s] most successful marketing campaigns ever”, having helped the company to generate sales leads that could be worth millions. Naturally we’re hugely excited both for ourselves and for Fujitsu that our work together has been recognised in this way.
First up is the SABREs, held at Camden’s awesome Roundhouse on May 20th.
We’ll have fingers – and everything else – crossed.
