Tech PR agency wins multiple golds

13 October 2021

Technical PR agency, Stone Junction, racked up a tally of five gold awards at this year’s CIPR (Chartered Institute of PR) PRide awards. The awards mark another year of continued excellence with the agency becoming the first to win PR Consultancy of the Year for three consecutive years.

In a virtual awards ceremony, hosted by the BBC’s Jason Mohammed and the CIPR Midlands committee chair Aimee Postle, the agency won golds for STEM Campaign, Best Use of Social and Digital Media, Best Staff Wellbeing Initiative, PR Consultancy of the Year and thrived on an individual level with one of Stone Junction’s account directors, Laura England, taking home Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year.

This success is the result of a continued effort, during a tough year for the PR industry, in which the sector shrank for the first time in two decades, according to PR Week. Despite unprecedented ways of working, Stone Junction has continued to produce campaigns that its peers recognise as excellent through award schemes such as PRide. 

The company’s award-winning ‘We Save Minds’ initiative has ensured that the team has been able to thrive and produce the same excellent results its clients have been used to for so many years. 

The CIPR stated that its judges were impressed at the way Stone Junction, “used the benefits of their CIPR membership and thoroughly researched their approach in looking after their staff during the pandemic. Their energy was visible during turbulent times and judges felt they smashed their objectives.”

“I’m so grateful to all the brilliant people at Stone Junction who have managed to achieve this against all the odds, during the toughest time for UK business media that I can remember,” explained Richard Stone, Managing Director of Stone Junction. “I’m also grateful to all the people who have made this happen who don’t work in the company day to day including journalists, clients and partners.”

“Every year, I see Staffordshire represented in a bigger way at the awards, this year by Karen McElroy of FCM PR & Communications who won Independent Practitioner of the Year and by Lesniak Swann who were shortlisted for Best Use of Content,” continued Stone. “The county is a place that is very close to my heart so this is amazing to see.”

Stone Junction will also be attending this year’s Advanced Engineering exhibition in Birmingham on November 3 and 4, where it is looking forward to showcasing its award-winning expertise in the technology and engineering sectors.
