SG50, Tate Anzur crowned overall winners at PR Awards 2016 [GALLERY]

Tate Anzur retained its title as the top PR Agency last night at Marketing magazine’s PR Awards 2016 after being named ‘PR Awards Champion – Agency’ for the second time in the awards’ three-year history.

Meanwhile, SG50 took home the top brand title, narrowly beating Changi Airport Group (Singapore) in a closely-fought competition.

Tate Anzur took home three Gold, two Silver and two Bronze awards for campaigns that include SG50’s ‘SG Heart Map’ and National Museum of Singapore’s ‘Singapore Night Festival’.

The agency’s road to overall victory wasn’t an easy one though, with previous champions Golin Singapore putting up a good close fight winning eight trophies that includes a Gold for the campaign ‘Create Your Taste’.

Meanwhile, overall brand champion SG50 won big, riding high on the hype surrounding the Singapore’s 50th year of independence celebrations. Its ‘SG Heart Map’ campaign swept three Gold awards. Runner-up Changi Airport Group (Singapore) clinched two Gold and two Silver awards, missing the overall title by a deficit of one Gold award.

Other winners at this year’s awards include A+E Networks Asia, Jetstar Asia, LEGO Singapore, PETRONAS, Unilever, among others.
