Congratulations to our 2015 Publisher’s Publicity Circle Award winners!
Many of our brilliant publicity campaigns were among those honoured at the Publisher’s Publicity Circle (PPC) Annual Awards last night. They celebrate the “best PR campaigns” carried out in 2015.
The PPC organises the awards as part of its on-going commitment to book promotion and the campaigns are judged according to “the publicist’s use of imagination, creativity, careful thought and strategic planning.”
The PPC Hardback Fiction Award, sponsored by Goldsboro Books, went to Alison Barrow of Doubleday for The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
The Children’s Book Award, went to Alice Broderick and Lauren Hyett with Jessica Farrugia-Sharples from Doubleday Children’s for The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett,
The Generic Campaign went to Ellie Hughes of Michael Joseph for the Ladybird Books for Grown-Ups series.
Bethan Jones, head of publicity at Vintage and chair of the PPC, said: “I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, publicists are some of the most creative, hard-working, diligent, passionate, ingenious, strategic, resourceful and dedicated people in our industry. They have made the judges’ task and incredibly difficult one this year, and I would like to congratulate the winners and all the nominees on a stellar year of phenomenal book publicity campaigns. Publicists are also some of the most supportive and collaborative people in the business, and it’s fantastic to have this opportunity to celebrate them at the Oscars of book PR.”
