CIPR Scotland PRide Awards 2012 winners

The winners of the CIPR Scotland PRide Awards were announced last night (Thursday 6 December) at a black-tie gala event at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange.

Public relations agencies, in-house teams, individual practitioners and an infamous primary school student were honoured for their contributions to public relations over the last year.

Among winners and finalists were Consolidated PR whose work with the Scottish government picked up three gold awards for campaigns including 'My Marriage', 'My Prison' and 'TheGift of Life'.

Stripe Communications also scooped the gold award for 'Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy' and for 'Healthcare', working with the Scottish government on Alcohol Behaviour Change.

Martha Payne, a 9-year-old primary school student who caused controversy earlier this year when she posted pictures of school lunches on the NeverSeconds blog, which her local council subsequently tried to ban, won the title of 'Scotland’s Inspiring Communicator of the Year'.
