What we've been up to: 4 March

What an exciting week it has been for us…from being shortlisted for the PR Week Global awards to winning a PR Moment award and entering into the UK Young Lions PR Competition 2016, here’s the lowdown on H+K this week…

We were thrilled to receive a PR Moment Award for the Healthcare team’s programme, The Carer Academy, winning the Healthcare/Pharma Campaign of the Year­­­. With 17,000 lives improved to date by increased mental illness education and support for family carers, we’re proud of the work. Our partnership with clients Otsuka and Lundbeck, the educators of King’s College London, the innovators at FutureLearn, and the advocates of EUFAMI means H+K stands taller in good company. We also want to congratulate our fellow nominees—as this category grows, it drives important health conversations forward. To read more about The Carer Academy course, click here

A big congratulations to all the teams that made it into the PR Week Global Award's shortlist!

Shortlisted across four categories, we have; ‘#MyIncredibleStory by Qatar Olympic Committee’ in the Public Sector category, ‘Ford Focus RS by Ford’ in the Consumer Launch + Product Brand Launch categories and ‘Caring for Carers by Otsuka Lundbeck’ in the Healthcare category…fingers crossed we’re in for more wins. You can find the full list here.

We are extremely excited to announce that H+K will once again enter the Cannes Young PR Lions contest. Passionate teams have put themselves forward for 2016, a both challenging and really fun opportunity, which winners get to travel to Cannes!

H+K have entered amazing teams in the past and with so much talent here at the agency, it is looking even better for 2016...

Our three 2016 teams are:

Sophie Arundale + James Fenn 

Dominic Stannard + Amelia Worley 

Francesca Raquet + Catherine Humphrey 

Take a look at key dates and overview of the competition here.

Good Luck guys and show your support! @hk_london #UKYoungLionsPR
