Muckle Media, the creative PR and marketing agency, has been named Public Spirited Agency of the Year at a high profile event in London celebrating the best in public sector communications. The awards ceremony, which showcased work from across local and national government, emergency services and other areas of the public and third sector followed a conference that explored the future of public sector communications.
Other winners on the night included the Greater Manchester Police communications team, who won the Bluelight Team of the Year and Crisis Communications Campaign of the Year for their response to the Manchester bombing attack and Greater London Authority who won Best Use of Video for their #LondonIsOpen campaign.
Nathalie Agnew, managing director, said: “Driven by digital, public sector communications is changing and we seek to lead the way in delivering accountable, outcome driven digital campaigns for clients across the public and private sector. We are excited to be recognised at a national level for our work helping public sector organisations reach their audiences and look forward to continuing to grow in the coming years.”
Peter Jones, communications manager at Moray Council, a Muckle Media client that was also shortlisted for two awards for its community engagement using social media, commented, “We’ve worked with Nathalie’s energetic and knowledgeable team at Muckle Media for a while now, and seeing them named as Public Spirited Agency of the Year comes as no surprise. They consistently deliver great work for us.”
In awarding the prize, the judging panel, which included senior public sector communicators from across the UK, said: “Muckle Media are head and shoulders above the rest, they have clear aims and objectives and have shown amazing results. They may be a small agency, but they certainly have a big social media mission.”
