A South Yorkshire public relations and media training agency has been shortlisted for two prestigious industry awards.
Capital B Media is up for accolades in the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) PRide Awards for Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.
The business has been shortlisted as Outstanding Small Public Relations Consultancy, and account manager Joshua Nutt has been named as a finalist in the Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year category.
The UK-wide PRide Awards recognise the achievements of a company or individual in the PR industry.
Director of Capital B Media Kate Betts said: “We’re honoured and delighted to be shortlisted for these awards. This is the third time the company has been shortlisted, but we’ve never had someone up for the Outstanding Young Communicator of the Year category.
“I’m very proud of Josh. His multimedia skills have been a real asset to the business and he’s delivered excellent video content for our clients.”
Josh, who has a degree in journalism from the University of Huddersfield, joined Capital B Media in 2014 as a junior account executive, and quickly progressed to the role of account manager. He now leads on campaigns for key clients.
The 23-year-old, who lives in Barnsley, said: “I’ve worked really hard during my short career to get to where I am today. Being shortlisted for such a respected award is a testament to this effort, but also to the excellent team that I have surrounding me, who have supported me through the years.”
The winners of the PRide Awards will be announced at a ceremony in Leeds in November.
Capital B Media, based in Millhouse Green near Barnsley, has built up a portfolio of PR clients from the public, private and third sectors. The company also provides UK-wide media training and a crisis communications service.
