Birmingham based PR agency Trimedia won the Agency of the Year award at European Execellence Awards 2008, in Budapest. Trimedia triumphed over names like Edelman, Weber Shandwick and others. The best campaign of the year award went to Aldi Stores UK: ALdi’s Amazing Hope in a Jar with Kavanagh Communications.
Trimedia’s campaigns were nominated in other three categories including health (GlaxoSmithKline: Snorers Sleep In); entertainment and culture (Solvalla: Framtidens Mötesplats – The Venue Of the Future); ecology and environment (WRAP: Love Food Hate Waste and Coca-Cola GB: Coke Can Creations) ; government agencies and parties (The Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Cul-ture and the Ministry of Science and Research: It’s up to YOU! Get involved in Democracy. An awareness-raising campaign with and for young people and Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO): Privacy Matters); company brochure (Wessex Reserve Forces & Cadets Association: TA 100 – 100 stories for 100 years); external publication (Requiem: toBe Magazine – Breakingthe Taboos of Death and Funerals) and others.
According to Trimedia Chief executive Michael Murphy there are more than 400 Trimedia consultants across Europe. With such a strong team of professionals no wonder that Trimedia basically ruled the European Excellence Awards.
Rachel Roberts, director of Trimedia’s Birmingham-based Midlands operation notes:
“It’s great to get these awards, but we never rest on our laurels so the challenge now is to continue to deliver the same level of success for our clients in 2009.”
