Spirit managing director Caroline Harris has been asked to judge two national public relations awards this year.
With more than 25 years’ experience in the field, she was approached to judge the Consumer Relations category for this year’s national CIPR Excellence Awards, alongside fellow PR professionals from across the country.
The award, which recognises the best work being done across the country to promote consumer products or services was hugely popular, with over 50 entries, and judging took place in London last month.
Caroline has also been asked to help judge the public relations category for a new awards initiative, Brand You, to recognise the individuals behind the industry’s most creative campaigns and innovative projects. Instead of focusing solely on the PR industry, these awards look at a raft of creative industries, including advertising, events and photography amongst others.
“It’s an honour to be invited to do this and really encouraging to see the fantastic, creative work being done in our industry” Caroline explains. “Seeing what others at the top of their game are doing also helps keep us on our toes”.
