‘Id like to thank my mother/father/agent/hairdresser/…’
And so the awards season commences…. and what better way to kick it off than with the irreverent, ‘alternative’ PR accolades, the now cherished Jackenhacks.
Crew Kaizo was of course out in force, taking the opportunity to catch up with ex-colleagues (competitive streaks set aside for the evening!) and have a drink with some of our favourite journos.
Revealing the industry’s worst slip-ups in eleven different categories, there were certainly some ‘interesting’ stories behind the nominations and some equally entertaining acceptance speeches: the agency who won ‘Biggest Loser of Clients and Talent’ distributed Wagon Wheels to the crowd (wheel…wagon….falling off….get it?!). Award for GSOH duly won!
We weren’t nominated (phew!) but we will keep you posted on other awards we are up for including PR Week’s ‘Best Consumer Campaign’ and PRCA’s ‘Best Technology’ and ‘Best Media Relations’, in the coming weeks
