Somerset agency ADPR wins coveted industry awards

Somerset based communications agency, ADPR, has walked away with two awards at the South West PRCA Dare Awards 2023. The agency won Small PR Consultancy of the Year and its Senior Account Executive, Kira Daly, won Rising Star of the Year 2023.  

Awarding the coveted Small PR Consultancy of the Year, the judges praised ADPR for their people-first approach and dedication to apprenticeships, and for their clear vision for the future of the company.  


Awarding Kira Rising Star of the Year award, the judges said she is a “tremendous, tremendous asset not only to her agency but to the profession as a whole”. Kira started her journey with ADPR in March 2020 on an apprenticeship, at the very beginning of the global pandemic. Kira showed real strength of character, not only throwing herself into her apprenticeship but quickly becoming an integral part of the ADPR team and supporting clients through turbulent times. 

ADPR’s Acting Managing Director, Jenny Walford, comments, “I am so proud of the whole team for winning these awards. Being recognised as one of the best in the industry is a testament to the team’s passion and dedication to their work and to each other. They are what make ADPR a trusted partner to our clients and a brilliant place to work!” 


Kira Daly, ADPR’s Senior Account Executive, adds, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be awarded the PRCA’s prestigious Rising Star of the Year – it’s a real honour! I’m beyond grateful for the recognition by the PRCA, my incredibly encouraging team and amazing clients.” 


These awards are hot on the heels of two awards at the annual CIPR Pride Awards, where the agency won Gold for both Small PR Consultancy of the Year and for the best Not-for-Profit Campaign of 2022.
