Technical PR agency shortlisted for five awards
Stone Junction shortlisted for five industry awards
Technical PR company, Stone Junction, has been shortlisted in five categories for the PRCA Midlands Dare Awards, recognising its effective media campaigns and client service. The PRCA Dare awards strive to reward the work of the very best public relations companies across the UK. The award ceremony will take place at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham, on July 5, 2017.
Stone Junction has been shortlisted for five awards, including Integrated Campaign of the Year, Low Budget Campaign, Trade and B2B Campaign, Rising Star of the Year and Large Consultancy of the Year. Interestingly, the company's steady growth has meant that this is the first year that it has been able to enter the Large Consultancy of the Year category.
"Five award nominations has created a palpable atmosphere of excitement in our workplace," said Richard Stone, managing director of Stone Junction. "It reflects our position and service in the industry, as well as the hard work of the team. Being shortlisted proves that we are delivering results for our clients with our winning combination of great customer service, industry knowledge and media relations. The high value coverage we generate supports our award entries greatly.
“It’s particularly exciting that we now qualify as a large consultancy. Stone Junction has seen an average of 45 per cent growth year-on-year since 2012, as a result of both winning new business and existing clients expanding the scope of work they undertake with us. It’s really rewarding to see that reflected in this award nomination.”
Being shortlisted for the best Trade and B2B Campaign has brought particular recognition for the Stone Junction's effective leading of a pan-European media campaign for NCH Europe.
"Our strategic efforts in the NCH Europe campaign included the launch of a quarterly trade magazine to a subscribed database of over 17,300 readers," said Kirsty McMahon, senior account executive at Stone Junction. "This Pan-European campaign has seen website traffic double for NCH Europe, not to mention the high value trade coverage that we have generated in leading manufacturing, food and beverage and environmental publications.
“We’ve managed to build the company’s brand presence to such a degree that it has seen a marked increase in high level sales. The team has worked really hard to make this international campaign successful, so I’m hardly surprised that it has been nominated for an award."
"Every time I visit Stone Junction there has been another fantastic change with the team or office," explained Cat Whitford, VP of HR at NCH Europe. "It's great to see the company doing so well and exceeding its targets by so much."
