A BROMSGROVE-based marketing agency has been shortlisted for eight regional awards.

Gough Bailey Wright, in Worcester Road, has been shortlisted for eight CIPR Mildlands PRide Awards.

The categories it has been nominated in include best use of photography or design, public affairs campaign, best event, best internal publication, best external publication, low budget campaign, as well as two nominations in the community relations campaign category.

Managing director, Sue Bailey, said: “This is an incredible achievement and a testament to the creativity and hard work of the team and the high quality service we provide to our clients.

"Last year we won the gold award in the Best External Publication category, so we’re hoping to add to that with a few more wins at this year’s event.

“We’ve had an amazing 2014 so far with new staff joining the agency and a number of new clients wins. But we’re not an agency to rest on our laurels, so we will continue to work hard for our existing clients and to win new ones.”

Organised by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, the awards recognise the region’s best in public relations.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Friday, November 14, at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
