UMIC tenant Frontier Public Relations shortlisted for two 2013 Golden Hedgehog Awards

Frontier Public Relations has been shortlisted in the Best B2B Campaign of the Year and Best Integrated Communications Campaign of the Year categories for the North, Northern Ireland and Scotland region of the Golden Hedgehog Awards 2013, chosen for their Progress: Leadership in Housing and work with client Mobysoft.

With many entries from the Northern region of the awards, the categories are set to be hotly contested with two other campaigns shortlisted for Best B2B campaign and seven nominated in the Best Integrated Communications category. Featuring 28 categories which are judged by a panel of 34 industry experts, the Golden Hedgehog awards celebrate excellence, outstanding campaigns and talent in the PR and Communications industry.

Established and managed by Frontier PR, Progress – Leadership in Housing is a series of regional forums aimed at senior decision makers within social housing.  Sponsored by Mobysoft, Progress continues to prove a platform for discussion and debate on topical issues, hosting events in London, Manchester, Yorkshire and Staffordshire to date, and further dates in London and the South West recently announced. In 2012, the campaign was also nominated for two CIPR PRide awards.

David Innes Edwards, Managing Director of Frontier PR, said: “We at Frontier PR are proud to be shortlisted in two categories in the Golden Hedgehog awards this year. This is a fantastic way to start to 2013, and to build upon the successes we had with this campaign in 2012.

It is excellent that we are being recognised for our work in the Social Housing sector, as with Progress we seek to be at the forefront of this rapidly changing industry.”

David continues: “Progress has delivered on so many levels for the various stakeholders involved, including the sponsors Mobysoft and each host housing provider. The progress event exemplifies intelligent, integrated communications at its best, delivering value for all involved and measurable return on investment for our client.”

Ben Smith, of organisers, said: ‘Congratulations to Frontier PR for being shortlisted in both the B2B Campaign of the Year & Integrated Communications Campaign of the year at the Golden Hedgehog Awards.
