Beachhut wins 2 awards at the #PRAwards17

27 June 2017

Our team at Beachhut PR picked up two gongs at the prestigious Awards for Excellence in Public Relations, held in the Shelbourne Hotel on Friday June 23rd.  These annual competitive awards are awarded to companies, who in the view of their industry peers, deliver the best PR campaigns across a number of industries.


The first award win for Beachhut PR was in Best Corporate Communications campaign category. This was awarded for the ‘NewsWhip Fundraising Announcement’, a campaign which garnered over $1m worth of domestic and international coverage in one day.


Beachhut PR’s second win was in the Best Event category and was presented to the team for their original and innovative campaign Startup Wake.  The event series, based around the concept of the traditional Irish wake, had Beachhut PR founder Paul Hayes going around the world burying dead startups for the Ryan Academy while getting the founders and investors to tell the truth about the failure; all the while drinking whiskey and lamenting lost opportunities.
