Our specialism in infrastructure PR and communications has been paying dividends.

We’re proud to say we have picked up two PRCA DARE awards – one for our work on the Northern Spire project with Sunderland City Council, which was awarded Best Public Sector Campaign, whilst work on projects like Mersey Gateway and others in the infrastructure sector was critical in helping us secure the Best Large Consultancy award.

We’re really chuffed with both of them – as it recognises our passionate and talented team delivering customer-focused solutions to achieve outstanding results for our clients.

The judges comments were great – they said “DTW felt fresh” and that the campaign work “demonstrated excellent planning, strong focus and clear objectives with a view to delivering great results”.

We know the value big infrastructure projects bring to UK plc – and we love PR and comms – so combining the two is great fun, really rewarding and full of hard work.

If you want to know more about our approach we’ve blogged about it enough times from the building blocks of good community engagement to case studies about Mersey Gateway and making best use of drones.

We also love a good chat – so just give us a call and we’ll be happy to see how we can help you.The PRCA DARE awards aim to recognise the best campaigns from across the north of England so for us to be winning against agencies from Leeds, Manchester and elsewhere was a real feather in the cap for us.

As well as strategic PR and marketing work we’ve also launched video and animation divisions in recent years and the team are working for clients from as far afield as Paris on infrastructure projects around the world.

David Abdy, Northern Spire Project Director for Sunderland City Council, said: “We’ve put communications at the heart of the Northern Spire work so it is great for the project to be recognised in this way. DTW have been a key part of the team here on site and we’re very pleased to pick up this award.”
