A PR firm’s contribution to Visit Suffolk’s “Curious County” tourism campaign this year is in the running for a regional award.

Norfolk-based Jungle PR’s entry, Resuscitating Suffolk: PR for a Curious County, has been shortlisted in the 2013 Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) East Anglia PRide Awards and will be vying for the Integrated Campaign crown.

Colchester-based Mosaic Publicity is a finalist in seven categories, including for Outstanding Young Communicator, where staff member Kelly Taylor will be battling it out with one other contestant.

Meanwhile, another Colchester team, Big Wave PR is shortlisted in two categories.

And the PR team as Essex County Council is up for four awards, including Outstanding in-house PR team.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the CIPR PRide Awards which take place in Ipswich on November 6.

Last year, the awards played host to more than 90 people at an awards dinner in Bury St Edmunds.
