County Down Agency Clinches Three Accolades at Prestigious Awards Ceremony
COUNTY Down based agency, RNN Communications, has won three awards including Small PR Consultancy of the Year during the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide Awards, which took place last night (Wednesday) in the Merchant Hotel, Belfast.
Established in 2013 by Ballynahinch native, Riki Neill, RNN Communications also clinched the top spot in two other award categories – Best Integrated Campaign for ‘Embracing Imperfection’ with DFI Beds and Best Corporate and Business Communications Campaign for ‘RNN Serves Up Success for IFEX.’
These accolades are the latest for the local agency, which was also crowned Outstanding Small Agency of the Year at the Public Relations Consultants Association PRCA DARE Awards, earlier this year. RNN is now one of the only agencies to have been awarded the top accolade by both professional Public Relations bodies in the UK.
Speaking about the PRide Awards win, Riki Neill, Founder and Client Director at RNN Communications said: “I’m beyond delighted for our team. We work hard, we deliver epic campaigns for our clients and to be awarded as the BEST by both the CIPR and PRCA this year is amazing.
“It’s been a big year, a transformative year for the business. We moved office to High Street, Ballynahinch, we launched fetch Ireland, which is now Ireland’s fastest growing micro influencer platform, we doubled our team and I was named as a Fellow - the highest honour - by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. So thrilled and grateful that we get to do what we love every day.”
“Just two weeks ago one of our clients received an award for Best Use of Social Media in Retail at the NI Social Media Awards. To have the same campaign receive the award for Best Integrated Campaign at the CIPR Awards is testament to the quality of work that we are delivering in partnership with our clients,” added Jolene Kelly, Senior Communications and Social Media Consultant at RNN Communications.
RNN Communications delivers a range of integrated PR campaigns for brands like DFI Beds, Gala Retail, the NOW Group, Kingspan and IFEX. The agency is also honoured to work with incredible local companies including MB McGrady & Co. Chartered Accountants, Kingdom Healthcare, Granite Exchange and Killeavy Castle Estate. Sister company to RNN, fetch Ireland, offers influencer management and micro influencer campaigns for local and international brands.
