I know I speak on behalf of our whole agency when I say that we are still smiling from our big wins at last week’s Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) Toronto Chapter’s Achieving Communications Excellence (ACE) Awards. If you missed it, K&P was recognized for 10 (yes – 10!) winning campaigns following this year’s 147 high-caliber submissions. While competing against various GTA-based agencies and organizations, our team secured one gold, six silver and three bronze awards, advancing our agency’s total CPRS wins to 62 since our doors opened in 2011.
We are truly grateful for this prestigious recognition by one of Canada’s leading communications and public relations associations and we are proud our outstanding work has been honoured once again on this national stage. While 2021 posed many challenges for businesses big and small, we believe these awards are a true testament to our strategic ideas, high-quality counsel and the industry-leading clients we are thankful to partner with every day. Being able to work on such impactful and rewarding campaigns is why we do what we do, and this kind of recognition is just icing on the cake.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing clients who continue to trust us to tell their stories, and our talented and resilient team for their unwavering commitment and devotion to bring these campaigns to life.
