  • Best Fashion and Beauty Campaign with Soap and Glory;  and
  • Best Automotive Campaign with Ford of Europe and the WPP Ford Team.

In addition, Sofiat Kolawole (Issues + Crisis Consultant, Corporate Affairs + Advisory) won this year’s EMEA Young Changemaker Award – a highly significant achievement. The award celebrates the next generation of communications leaders, helping launch the careers of up-and-comers and creating better equity and more opportunity for those in marginalized groups.

More broadly in our network, H+K won Middle East Consultancy of the Year for the third time in a row, while picking up awards for campaign work with AstraZenica and Shell.

The SABRE awards are one of the most prestigious recognitions in the communications industry and H+K was nominated alongside the top agencies in the region. The accolades follow H+K winning Pan-EMEA Consultancy of the Year four times since 2016, Pan-EMEA Agency of the Decade in 2020 and UK Consultancy of the Year in 2017.
