Viva collects hat-trick of PR awards

Rawtenstall-based Viva came out top in three categories at the annual PRCA Dare North Awards.

The PRCA Dare North Awards recognise the best talent, agencies and campaigns in the North of England. Viva won in both the Low Budget Campaign and Digital and Social Media Campaign awards for their work with charity Child Action North West (CANW), as well as the Rising Star of the Year award which was won by Account Executive Nicole Parkes.

Viva was also shortlisted for two further campaigns, and for Small Agency of the Year (an accolade they won in 2019).

The judges said: "The CANW campaign was powerful and emotional, and contained multi-layered objectives, and was worthy of some recognition!

"Nicole won the Rising Star award because it’s clear she’s added value to the business. She’s already made a huge impact and you get a real sense of pride that Viva has for her – Nicole is delivering great results which is amazing to see."

Tony Garner, managing director at Viva, said: "There is a lot of great competition and talent in the North of England, and award wins are a great indication that we live up to our promises and deliver work with impact. I’m particularly pleased for Nicole who won the Rising Star Award because she has worked really hard over the past 18 months.”
