The Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) 2014 National Golden Target Awards were held Monday night at the Brisbane Convention Centre – sixty-four finalists in 13 categories and more than 169 entries in total.

Big winners on the night included Porter Novelli Melbourne, Financial and Corporate Relations, PPR WA, Phillips Group, The Red Republic, Edelman, Weber Shandwick, NSW Health, Pesel and Carr, Palin Communications, Red Agency, The Australian National University, and Murdoch University.

Mike Watson, PRIA national president, said: “What another fantastic year for the Golden Target Awards, in its 38th year, it’s amazing to see 60+ campaigns recognised by the industry’s top talent. The Australian PR industry continues to lead globally, and we are honoured to have Michelle Hutton, one of our own, head off to bigger pastures in London.”

“Public relations is growing in influence in society and the community, our role as communicators is more important than ever. The campaigns showcased really show where good communications can really go,” Watson concluded.

Allison Lee, Golden Target Awards chair and deputy president of PRIA, said: “Creative ideas and innovative responses win not just awards, but also client and company respect. As a result, clients are increasingly turning to PR companies to lead those other agencies operating in the marketing mix – and so they should.”

The night brought the 2014 National Golden Target Awards’ finals to a conclusion for another year.
