Brands2Life Global has seen a steady stream of award nominations roll in for partners across the globe in recent weeks, bringing a small sprinkling of cheer at this very difficult time for many. Whether championing data literacy or raising awareness of human trafficking, the breadth and scope of the work delivered by our teams continues to impress and here are just some of the highlights.

Beginning in Europe, the team across Spain and Portugal at Canela PR received two EMEA Sabre award nominations. The first in the not-for-profit category, is for their work on ‘A Call to End Human Trafficking’, a campaign with Sonrisas de Bombay, a non-governmental organisation focusing on poverty, human rights and equal opportunities in the city of Bombay. The Canela team’s second nomination is for charitable campaign ‘#jointhewave’ with the Green Innovation Group, an organisation accelerating innovative green solutions across the world.

Jumping across the pond to the US, Highwire PR has been chosen as finalists at the North American Sabre awards for demonstrating exceptional media relations work. In the product media relations category, the team has been recognised for its trade media communications which innovated consumer ECGs with AliveCor. Over in the corporate media relations field, the judges were impressed by the team’s achievements for Appian, making low-code automation mainstream.  And, here in the UK, Brands2Life has been nominated five times at the EMEA Sabre awards. Work spans four categories, beginning with integrated marketing for business intelligent client Qlik’s ‘Data Literacy Project’. This follows two nominations at The Drum Marketing Awards – fingers crossed the team can add some additional trophies to the cabinet! Elsewhere Canary Wharf’s ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ campaign is recognised in the real estate and construction category, and two highly successful LinkedIn projects – the original ‘The Linked Inn’ activation and its sister event ‘Grimsby United’ – are up in the web-based business category. Finally, the consumer health category sees a nomination for Balance Activ with the highly successful – and much talked about – ‘Maybe It’s Not Thrush’ campaign.

To round off the nominations, PRWeek UK shortlisted Brands2Life UK four times at the Best Places to Work Awards for 2020 and the agency won Best Rewards & Benefits and Best PR Internship Scheme as well as a Highly Commended for Diversity & Inclusion. And finally, the PRmoment Awards shortlist saw Brands2Life UK nominated eleven times across various categories, including Event of the Year, Consumer PR Campaign of the Year, Healthcare/Pharma Campaign of the Year, Community Engagement Campaign of the Year and B2B PR Agency of the Year.

We’re acutely aware of the many challenges our peers and colleagues across the PR industry, and indeed the world, are currently facing. As these nominations show, our partners have been deeply committed to delivering work that goes above and beyond, and we are sure this will continue well into 2020 and beyond. Congratulations to all the nominees and we look forward to hopefully celebrating this success in person later this year.
