UPDATED: Romanian PR Award designated its 2013 winners, with Rogalski Damaschin – agency of the year

(Adds statements from the winners)

Romanian PR Award announced, last night, during a Gala, the winners of this year’s edition of the competition. Previous to the gala night, most nominated agency on Romanian PR Award shortlist were Golin Harris (20 times), Rogalski Damaschin Public Relations – 19 and GMP – 15.

Rogalski Damaschin Public Relations scooped PR Agency of the Year, while Simona Miculescu, Romania’s ambassador at UN, was selected Communicator of the year.

In total, the jury awarded 19 Gold, 30 Silvers and 9 excellence diplomas. PR In-house Team of the year went to Raiffeisen Bank’s communication team, while Conan PR was selected as “Small Consultancy of the Year”. A “Special Award for Outstanding PR Achievements” was handed to Gabriela Lungu, CCO, UK & EMEA, Weber Shandwick.

Talking about the Agency of the Year award, Eliza Rogalski and Alina Damaschin said:

On one of our agency’s walls there’s a quote that inspired us many times in 2013: “If you work really hard and are kind, amazing things will happen”. Maybe that is why 2013 will remain in our agency’s history as the year we reinvented not only our identity, but also our professional priorities. The fact that we receive the highest recognition of the PR industry – the Agency of the Year title – makes 2013 an absolutely memorable year. And for this, I want to thank to the 11 beautiful people that mean Agency of the Year, to the clients that demanded us results and professional substance all the time, not just in 2013, to the jury for appreciation and fair-play and to Romanian PR Award organizers, for the consistence of a competition that becomes harder and harder to conquer

Eliza Rogalski,

Head of Corporate Communication & Strategy Leader Rogalski Damaschin Public Relations.

We are extremely happy that the title of Agency of the Year came as result of distinctions for 8 different campaigns, close to clients that are our partners for years. These prizes are validating the continous results and confirm us the direction to build integrated communication campaigns based on ideas with real positive impact over brands and society. I thank to  the clients for supporting us and sharing the same principles, to all our partners together with which we make our ideas possible and, more than anything, I thank to our team of hearty and professional people

Alina Damaschin,

Head of Consumer Communication & Creative Leader, Rogalski Damaschin Public Relations.

The  Small Consultancy of the Year award went to Conan PR, agency founded in 2010 and that worked, during the last 3 years, on communication projects for clients such as Heidi, Dr. Oetker, CODECS, Riemerschmid, Total Post, HoneyWood, Storience, Hello Communication or artcademy. 

It was our first participation in a PR competition and we didn’t know what to expect. The joy was even bigger when we found out that we won, as this prize insures us that we’re on the right path. We hope that, next year, we will be again on the winners list. Until than, we remain the same team of communication professionals, young, enthusiast and dedicated 8 out of 7 days to our partners’ businesses

Partner Conan PR.

“Why don’t you come over?” campaign was designated the Campaign of the Year, which made happy both Mediafax Group (that owns Gandul.info) and GMP Advertising

With just 2-3 hours from concept to execution and delivery, I believe this campaign was the fastest this year. I think its success was based on the creative concept, doubled by the capacity to deliver to the public that Mediafax Group has. It is a campaign that shows that Romanians that are preoccupied by their country’s image, educated and social active Romanians, represent an important part of our public. We made great team with GMP and Romanians in social media. And we will do it again!

Lucian Mindruta

Creative Marketing Manager Mediafax Group

Mediafax Group and GMP Group showed very nicely where a relationship based on trust can lead. And us, people from GMP Group – GMP Advertising, WebStyler and GMP PR – showed ourselves one more time that it is good to be attentive to what happens around us and to take attitude, to be pro-active. And, more than anything, how fast and well we can work together.

On the other hand, I think Romanians deserve to be respected and we are happy we managed to see more Romanians that said: this campaign made me proud to be Romanian

Felix Tataru,

President GMP Group.
