A public relations agency based in Holywood has been named the UK’s Best New Consultancy at the PRCA National Awards in London.
Clearbox, which delivers PR for clients such as Amazon, Universal Pictures, Digital DNA and Its4Women.ie, was honoured at the glittering awards ceremony in London’s Hilton Park Lane, hosted by TV presenter, Rachel Riley.
The annual PRCA Awards showcases excellence in campaigns, consultancies, in-house teams and individuals and highlights the innovative work of the PR industry across the UK.
Clearbox began life in 2014 and, in less than two years, has grown to a team of six delivering campaigns for brands and businesses across the UK and Ireland.

Clearbox Managing Director Anna Morris and Associate Director John Megaughin collected the award at the ceremony, which saw London-based agency Brands2Life clinch Large Consultancy of the Year and Mischief PR take home Campaign of the Year for their work with Paddy Power.
“We’re absolutely ecstatic to be bringing home the award for Best New Consultancy. We were up against a lot of highly successful agencies who do great work for big name clients so, when our name was called out, we were stunned” said Anna Morris, Clearbox Managing Director.
“Clearbox was set up in 2014 with one goal; to bring global business to Northern Ireland. We have known from day one who we want to work with, where we want to be and what we want to do so to be working with our favourite brands, such as Amazon and Universal Pictures, as well as a great mix of local companies is a dream come true for us.”
PRCA Director General, Francis Ingham added:
“The PRCA Awards is about recognising and celebrating excellence across the PR industry. It is with a sense of pride that the profession finds itself at the forefront of nurturing new, exciting and creative talent and it is with great delight that we have honoured Clearbox – a fresh and innovative company doing great things across the UK and Ireland – with this award.”
Last month Clearbox scooped two Gold CIPR PRide awards for their work with Universal Pictures UK to launch Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie to DVD, which saw the film become HMV’s biggest selling DVD of all time.
