Meet the Chair of the 2021 Pressie Awards Committee |  Sean Brown

Posted 1 September 2021.

What are The Pressie Awards all about?

​Simply put, the annual Pressie Awards are to recognise the best PR, experiential and social media campaigns in New Zealand.

But what they’re really about THIS YEAR, is celebrating our hard work and the impact it has HAD ON brands, businesses and the community. Now more than ever, it’s important for brands to connect with people in a meaningful way and for us to connect together – both in real life and virtually.

Our to-do list is so varied - from issues management to experiential, from influencer marketing to media relations, from huge stunts to clever not-for-profit campaigns, and everything in between. We’re also often the planners, the creatives, the pitchers, the copywriters, the suits and the producers. It’s challenging at times, but I hope you all agree it’s pretty rewarding.

Whether it’s a big budget campaign or a charitable freebie, whether you’re from a large agency or if you’re a one-person-band, this is your chance to share and celebrate your amazing work from the past year, and what a year it has been!

Good luck and hopefully see you at our fourth Awards night in November.

Cheers, Sean
