Agency wins double PRGN gold
Cullen Communications has won two Gold Awards for Excellence at the 2017 PRGN (Public Relations Global Network) Awards in Kyoto, Japan.
We’ve been a member of the prestigious PRGN alliance since 2004, and the network’s annual PR awards are a great opportunity to measure our work against some of the leading independent agencies from around the world.
This year, we measured up pretty well! Having entered a total of five projects, it was announced on Friday that we won two Gold awards for the following projects:
‘Ford 100’ (Events – external)
In April 2017, our client Ford celebrated 100 years in Ireland. To mark the occasion, the company’s global executive chairman, Bill Ford – great grandson of Henry Ford himself – visited Ireland along with his wife Lisa and two sons.
Working with the client and partner agencies, Cullen Communications organised a programme of activity designed to raise awareness of the company’s proud Irish legacy – and its place in a changing automotive world.
‘Fiesta 40’ (Events – internal)
In 2016, the iconic Ford Fiesta celebrated 40 years in Ireland. On behalf of Ford Ireland, Cullen Communications devised and implemented a national PR campaign to mark the milestone while also introducing the new Fiesta ST200.
We also won a Bronze award for our launch of the new Equifax IT centre in Dublin in September 2016 – a good day’s work!
