Lancashire PR agency Viva has been shortlisted for an international PR industry award for the second consecutive year.

The agency is one of only seven shortlisted in the Small PR Consultancy of the Year category at the international CIPR Excellence Awards, which are being held in London in June.

In fact, Viva is the only agency on the shortlist representing the North of England, with three London-based agencies, two based in Ipswich and one from Guernsey making up the list of nominees.

Viva was awarded the awarded the Mark of Excellence in this category in 2022 – agency founder and MD, Tony Garner, is hoping to go one better this time around.

He said: “Making the shortlist in the CIPR Excellence Awards for the second year in a row is a huge deal to us, as these awards cover the whole globe.

“We travelled to London in hope rather than expectation last year, and to come away with the Mark of Excellence was just incredible. I’ve got everything crossed for my hard-working team that we can scoop the top prize this time.”

Winners of the CIPR Excellence Awards will be revealed on Wednesday 28th June at The Royal Lancaster London.
