Manifest named Best Integrated Agency at the PR Moment Awards 2018
by Namuli Katumba
The Manifest London office was full of broad smiles and a few sore heads after celebrating four award wins at last week’s PR Moment Awards, picking up Best Integrated Agency for a third time.
The night kicked off for us with not one, but two awards, recognising the pro-bono work that we did for Rize Up last year. This campaign was very close to our hearts as at its core, was a mission to get under-25s in the UK engaged and voting in the future of their country, particularly the general elections last year. The resulting campaign was awarded Community Engagement Campaign of the Year and Integrated Communications Campaign of the Year.
Fast forward to the latter end of the night, and a few proseccos later, and we were up on stage again to collect awards for Integrated Agency of the Year and Emerging Agency of the Year, two awards we’ve been working extremely hard for.
In 2017 we redefined what it means to be an integrated agency. No other agency grew profits 600%+, increased average retained fee 52%, maintained a 96.4% staff retention rate and achieved a client performance rating of 90%+, all whilst opening a Stockholm office, reinventing integrated reporting, building proprietary influencer relations technology, winning 87% of new business pitches, pissing off Trump by building a bar across the US/Mexico border, giving women an orgasm makeover, and inspiring a record number of under-25s to vote. All done with a belief that integrated comms has the capacity to change the world for the better.
