CORK-based PR agency, AM O’Sullivan PR Ltd., has won the inaugural PR Agency of the Year award.
The award-winning, strategic communications consultancy accepted the PRCA Agency of the Year Award (1-10 employees) at the annual awards for Excellence in Public Relations, held on-line for the first time due to Covid-19 restrictions, with an audience of more then 320 people tuning in.
The criteria for the award assessed the work that AM O’Sullivan PR has done over the past year and focused on evaluating the growth of the business, PR campaigns carried out on behalf of clients and the agency’s dedication to education and improvement.
In presenting the award, the judges noted that “all [shortlisted] agencies are punching above their weight and delivering impressive work for international and local clients.”
However, the judging panel was unanimous in selecting AM O’Sullivan PR as the winning agency as “it stood out because of its national reach and local presence in successfully representing global brands.”
Speaking on receipt of the award, AM O’Sullivan PR’s Chief Executive, Ann-Marie O’Sullivan said: “When I founded AM O’Sullivan PR it was with the belief that we could provide best-in-class strategic communications support to indigenous and multi-national organisations from our headquarters in Cork.
“To be recognised unanimously by the judging panel for achieving this goal is very satisfying.
“We would be nothing without our clients and partners and I want to thank them for their continuing support.
“I also want to pay particular tribute to the AM O’Sullivan PR team who always go above and beyond to deliver for our clients,” concluded Ms O’Sullivan.
The Awards for Excellence in Public Relations are the premier PR awards in Ireland.
AM O’Sullivan PR has the distinction of being the only non-Dublin based member of PRCA Ireland which is the trade association for Irish consultancies engaged in the practice of public relations.
AM O’Sullivan PR has garnered significant recognition in recent years and in 2019 the consultancy became a proud partner in IPREX, the global communications platform.
