Havas PR recognised at CIPR PRide awards

The Manchester office of Havas PR last night won a gold award for best Public Sector Campaign at the 2018 CIPR PRide Awards North West.

The campaign, 'Make Smoking History in Greater Manchester', was a collaborative Havas Village Manchester campaign with Havas Lynx, and saw Havas PR work with Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, to successfully launch the largest public consultation of its kind in the region's ten boroughs, featuring a smoke screen installation which displayed anti-smoking messages in the air.

Havas PR was also awarded silver award for best Corporate and Business Communications Campaign for its 'Armitage Beats' campaign to mark the 200th anniversary of Armitage Shanks.

The awards mark another successful year of recognition for the agency, which was recently named as the 2018 PR Agency of the Year at the UK Agency Awards in London.
