Birmingham city based PR and design agency Seal was recognised as one of the top agencies in the Midlands after scooping four awards at the annual prestigious CIPR PRide event.
Seal fought off stiff competition from five other entrants in the Best Campaign under 10K category to win gold for their work with Michelin, re-launching the classic series of children’s books, I-spy.
Seal literally owned the Best Event category this year, unusually picking up gold and silver in the Best Event category for the opening of Walsall Manor Hospital and Walsall College’s Urban Festival respectively.
Ending the night on a high, Seal’s most recent addition to the PR team, graduate Sarah Stevenson, was awarded Student of the Year at the event

Seal’s Managing Director, Nigel Pipkin said: “Wow! To win every award we entered really reflects the outstanding quality of work from our fantastic team here at Seal. There were some brilliant Midlands entries this year which makes winning all the more exciting.
“In these recessionary times, it was especially good to win gold for our Michelin campaign, demonstrating we are top of the tree for offering value for money without compromising results.
“We’re thrilled to have won for ourselves and, of course, on behalf of our clients for whom we will continue to deliver award winning work.”
The CIPR Pride awards recognise excellence and reward achievement in public relations and communications. The Midlands event was held on Friday at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel.
