pride awards 2014 logoB2B public relations agency Media Safari has been shortlisted for two “Best Technology Campaign” awards from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). 2014 marks the fourth consecutive year that Media Safari has received industry recognition from the institute.

Media Safari take two out of four spots in their category for campaigns on behalf of antivirus software firm Bitdefender and biometrics company Human Recognition Systems. Competitors for the award are Carswell Gould for their promotion of SETsquared ‘s 10 year celebration and Remarkable Group for the Can you Find It? operation, a recruitment drive on behalf of GCHQ.

According to CIPR, the PRide awards “…recognise and reward the inspirational work of leading public relations teams and consultancies in nine UK regions and nations.” The “Best Technology Campaign” award is one of 23 categories in CIPR’s shortlist for the South of England and Channel Islands region.

Managing Director of Media Safari Matt King said: “Our ongoing commitment to exploring communication focuses on continually enhancing activity for our global tech PR clients by responding to the latest industry trends. Recognition from the CIPR for these two distinct campaigns demonstrates the value that our proactive PR activity has delivered to both organisations,”

“It is an honour to have been shortlisted twice in this highly-competitive category, particularly as this year marks the first year that the PRide awards have been extended beyond the South West region to now cover the whole of the South of England. We look forward to learning the judges’ decision.”

The winners will be announced in November, with a formal dinner being held at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre on 21 of the same month.
