Spada shortlisted for three top public relations awards

Happy times at Spada Towers – this week we learned we have been shortlisted for not one, not two, but three industry awards for our work over 2013/14.

We are in the running for two SABRE EMEA Awards – in the Issues Management category for ‘Death of the Cheats’ Charter’, our work with Farrer & Co around the seminal supreme court judgment in Petrodel v Prest, and in the Professional Services category for our profile-raising campaign with Powell Gilbert LLP. And at the end of last week we learned that the agency had been shortlisted for Best Use of Media Relations at the CIPR Excellence awards, also for our work with Farrer & Co.

Spada will be facing off against such big hitters as BDO, G4S, and McDonalds, with some very impressive entries.

Hopefully there will be more to follow! And please wish us luck for the awards in May and June!
