December 2015, United Kingdom — Sussex-based PR company, Midnight Communications, won four awards for its work on behalf of regional tourist attractions – as well taking the Silver award for Outstanding Mid-Sized Public Relations Consultancy.
At the CIPR PRide Awards 2015, held in Bristol earlier this month, Midnight Communications collected two silver awards for its work with Brighton Sea Life Centre (Consumer Relations and Regional Campaign of the Year) and was awarded gold for its work with Arundel Castle (Arts, Culture or Sport Campaign).
Well known for its business awards schemes, Midnight also took gold for the Best Event on behalf of Startups Awards 2014.
Commenting on its work with Arundel Castle, the judges said: “Playing to the visual strengths of the Castle, Midnight brought the destination to life using a variety of tools and channels, notably through a well-designed social media strand. Implementation was sustained and effective, securing on-message coverage in the target national titles.”
Midnight is celebrating its twentieth year in the business and last month its principal and founder, Caraline Brown, was presented with an award for Freshest Outstanding Achievement at the Fresh PR Awards in Manchester.
