Captain Manchester, Manchester’s superhero famed for his strapline “It’s nice to be nice’ scooped 3 top awards, including the coveted Grand Prix accolade in the Golden Hedgehog Awards 2014.
The Awards are run by online PR magazine ThePRmoment.com to celebrate excellence and recognise and reward outstanding campaigns and exceptional talent in the PR and Communications Industry.
The Captain Manchester campaign, delivered for Forever Manchester by Tunafish Media, took home the top awards in categories for Not for Profit Campaign of the Year and Stunt of the Year, as well as scooping the crème de la crème Grand Prix award. Tunafish director Sam Jones was also presented with the Golden Hoglet award for his work with this and other projects.
Forever Manchester Chief Executive Nick Massey comments, “Tunafish Media were briefed to come up with a campaign that illustrated the charity’s ethos and work, raised our profile amongst new audiences and helped us to raise money. Captain Manchester surpassed all our expectations and has provided us with a platform that has longevity for use across different sectors of our communities over coming years. We are chuffed to bits that their work has received this recognition, especially when pitched against work produced by a range of large, talented agencies.”
Tunafish Media’s Sam Jones adds, “We’re so proud that our Captain Manchester campaign has received such amazing recognition amongst our peers. Forever Manchester is a great charity that is willing to push boundaries and we’re proud of the impact that the campaign has had.”
