The CIPR PRide Awards is the UK’s most prestigious nationwide awards scheme, recognising excellence in public relations and communications across Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and six English regions. In its 16th year, the scheme attracts around 1,000 entries from PR teams, consultancies and individuals across the country.
This year, Wildwood received nominations in two categories; our very own rising star, Melissa Baker, was shortlisted for Outstanding Young Communicator and our podcast, The Integrated Home, was nominated for Best Use of Content.
The team brushed off their best evening wear and headed to Bristol to recognise our industry colleagues’ achievements. Joining members of the Wildwood team to celebrate were Meridian Audio, a long-standing client and prominent manufacturer in the audio space, the AlFi Media team who produce our podcasts, and home technology integrators CinemaWorks and Total Solutions.
Winning a PRide Award sets you apart and demonstrates the value of PR to the wider business world. Winners are selected by a team of leading industry experts so winning an award is a highlight for all involved. Following a champagne reception and a delicious three-course meal, it was on to the nail-biting business of the awards ceremony itself.
Outstanding Young Communicator
We’re thrilled to share that Melissa Baker, Account Manager at Wildwood, snapped up Silver in the category for Outstanding Young Communicator. The award recognises the achievements, performance and excellent work of a young professional in the industry who is making a valuable contribution to the organisation they work for, showing considerable promise as a future leader. We couldn’t think of a better way to describe Melissa!
Melissa has been with Wildwood for just under three years and works across several of our large residential technology and interior design clients. She’s built brilliant relationships with clients and media alike and has strong skills in event management and media relations.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the evening – here’s to another successful year!
