2012 in the Smoking Gun study

What a few weeks. Recent times here on Quay Street have seen award wins, more nominations, and, of course, plenty of media coverage. Impressive, even if we do say so ourselves, nevertheless it pales in comparison with this year’s overall success.
So this time last December we were a little smaller, and had significantly fewer trophies on our mantelpiece. But that was before our achievements at the Fresh PR Awards, position as best social media agency finalists in the now-sorely missed How-Do’s own league tables, and the yield of no less than four silvers and one gold medal in 2012’s installment of the CIPR PRide North West ceremony.
And we’re always keen to add more, including at the forthcoming City of Manchester Business Awards, wherein we’re in the running for Best PR and Marketing Agency. As decided on by 50% judges, and 50% online votes, the latter is particularly encouraging after we were ranked third by our peers in Insider Media’s list of the North West’s hottest agencies. Should you feel the urge to show us some support, please vote here.
Of course any campaign is a two-way street, and so it’s indicative of our forward thinking clients that we’ve been able to produce such stand out work. Major new additions to the roster like Kumho Tyres and The Kennel Club have certainly provided plenty of inspiration, and it gives us great pleasure to continue planning high profile media activities for a host of equally great brands.
Onwards and upwards then, despite the obvious enjoyment any holiday brings the New Year start really can’t come soon enough. Just before we part ways, though, why not follow this link to our Christmas Facebook app, which offers the chance to win an iPod Touch, and guarantees charitable donations every time the page is shared. After all, it is the season of goodwill.
