EZE Group’s sponsorship campaign with Blues has been shortlisted for the finals of the 2013 CIPR Midlands PRide Awards.

EZE Group, along with the company’s agency Fleet Street Communications, has been recognised for its outstanding work in the community relations category of the PRide Awards. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the awards, which will be held at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham later this year.

The CIPR PRide Awards recognise the outstanding talents and achievements of public relations practitioners across the UK’s regions and nations. They are the most prestigious and rigorous awards of their kind. 

Commenting on this year’s shortlist announcement, CIPR President Sue Wolstenhome FCIPR, said: “The CIPR PRide Awards celebrate the very best in public relations from across the UK’s regions and nations. This year’s entries were all of an incredibly high standard, highlighting the industry-leading work that is taking place right across the UK. I would like to congratulate all of those who have been shortlisted for an award; their success demonstrates their exemplary achievements in such a thriving profession, and recognises the impact they have made in their region and beyond.” 

Dominic O’Reilly, chief executive of EZE Group, said: “We are delighted our sponsorship campaign with BCFC has been recognised as it was very important for us to use the partnership to build relationships with ordinary fans in the community.”

"Our EZE Wishes campaign was a key component of our sponsorship and we are very pleased to be continuing with this during the forthcoming season as diamond partners of Birmingham City F.C.”
