2020 Shortlist – North


Congratulations to all those shortlisted to the PRmoment Awards 2020.

The PRmoment Awards are incredibly competitive, just to be shortlisted is a huge achievement.  If you didn’t make it this time – we’re really sorry! The worst part of running an awards gig is telling people they didn’t quite make it this year!

If you are shortlisted we’ll send you your shortlisted badge and logo very soon and you can find all the ticket details for the London and Manchester events here.

Please note we updated the types of winner, the number of firms shortlisted and number of categories slightly this year. This was done in response to feedback from our judges. In a number of categories our judges found it difficult to compare two outstanding entries, perhaps because of the budget, or the type of work. In these cases we have awarded Gold and Silver Awards.

The PRmoment Awards have a reputation for being the most “fun” PR Awards. While many awards organisers add more and more categories to the awards, resulting in a longer and longer ceremony – this year we have taken the step of reducing the number of categories. So the PRmoment Awards ceremony will only last just over an hour.
