01.08.2013 Perfect recipe for Team Cake in the PRide Awards

We are very proud to have been shortlisted for four awards at the 2013 Chartered Institute of Public Relations Pride Cymru Wales Awards.

We will be looking to emulate last year’s success, when we scooped Outstanding Small Consultancy (and got to don fancy frocks and black ties).


This year we have been nominated for Outstanding Small Consultancy, Best Not-For-Profit Campaign, Best Low Budget Campaign and Best Integrated Campaign. The latter three nominations are for our work launching women’s economic development agency Chwarae Teg’s landmark ‘A woman’s place?’ report. The report examined women’s position in the Welsh economy and the barriers preventing them from achieving their potential in the workplace.

This year marks the CIPR Pride Awards’ 10th anniversary. Each year the awards recognise the outstanding talents of Public Relations practitioners across the UK’s regions and nations.

Cake Communications – established in 2011 by former journalist and award-winning PR practitioner Sara Robinson – is an independent communications agency offering multi-platform communication campaigns, public relations consultancy, digital strategy, social media management and training.

We are incredibly proud to be nominated for four Pride awards in only our second year of business. Our service is results-driven and we are dedicated to going that extra mile for our clients to ensure their communications work achieves and exceeds objectives. This year has been an undoubted success for us and these nominations really are the icing on the cake for our hard-working and talented team.

The judging process for the PRide Awards is rigorous with a national panel of industry experts assessing the shortlisted entries and choosing the winners.

Commenting on this year’s shortlist announcement, CIPR President, Sue Wolstenholme, said:

“The CIPR PRide Awards celebrate the very best in public relations from across the UK’s regions and nations. This year’s entries were all of an incredibly high standard, highlighting the industry-leading work that is taking place right across the UK. I would like to congratulate all of those who have been shortlisted for an award; their success demonstrates their exemplary achievements in such a thriving profession, and recognises the impact they have made in their region and beyond.”

The winners of the 2013 Cymru Wales CIPR PRide Awards will be announced at a black-tie dinner on 18th October at the Hilton Cardiff.
