Playtime PR adds to trophy cabinet

Published on: 11th October 2023

Playtime PR has been named Integrated Agency of the Year (Small) at the UK Agency Awards, plus scooped Silver for PR Agency of the Year at the CIPR PRide Awards.

Playtime PR is also a finalist in the prestigious PRCA UK Awards which are set to take place in November where the agency hopes to bring home the title of Specialist Consultancy of the Year. Earlier this year, the agency was also a finalist in the same category at the CIPR Excellence Awards.

Judges at the UK Agency Awards, a nationwide contest recognising and rewarding exceptional agencies, said: “This agency has reached great growth and high customer satisfaction, and its achievements clearly align with its desired objectives. Congratulations!”

Playtime’s founder, Lesley Singleton, remarked: “We exist to make lives more playful, and we do that by devising creative and playful campaigns and activations for our brilliant toys and games clients. To have the team’s hard work and talent recognised by respected and authoritative bodies in the wider PR and comms world, beyond our toy bubble, gives us all a warm and fuzzy feeling. However, beyond that, I know it means a lot for our clients to feel reassured that we’re continuing to deliver impactful campaigns that align with their business objectives.”

She added: “We’re well into our all-important Q4 campaigns now and already seeing stellar results from months of lead-up work and big bang creative activations for our very valued toy clients. Of course, we don’t do it for the pat on the back, but that doesn’t stop me being fiercely proud of our loyal, talented and brilliant team.”

Playtime was founded in 2014 and works with playful brands of all shapes and sizes.
