PR Agency of the Year

Shortlisted for ‘PR Agency of the Year’

We are so excited to announce we’ve been shortlisted for PR Agency of the Year at the Prolific North Champion Awards 2024. Following a year of major client wins, impactful campaigns and stats that broke records, we’re so happy to see that all our hard work is being recognised on a national scale.

Whilst we work with a broad range of clients across the UK and internationally, the heart of the agency always comes back to our North-based roots. Having worked with some of the fastest-growing operators, new businesses and respected entrepreneurs throughout the North and beyond, we’ve definitely put our stamp on this side of the world – covering sectors across retail, property, leisure & hospitality and manufacturing.

Prolific North’s annual awards programme is an opportunity for the best of the industry in the North of England to be recognised and we are so pleased to be amongst the brilliant creative and digital agencies that have been shortlisted.

Being named as a finalist of PR Agency of the Year is a real testament to Team LUYA’s incredible hard work and we couldn’t be more proud.


A year for the books…


From fun PR stunts (yes, we’re bringing back flashmobs!) to full-scale events up and down the country and an insane amount of coverage, we’ve certainly been busy over the past 12 months. Here’s just a quick overview of what we’ve been up to across some of our major campaigns.

Looking to the future…


What’s next for Team LUYA we hear you ask? Well, there’s plenty more events, coverage and social campaigns where that came from.

We do however have big plans when it comes to growth. We’re thinking global, aiming to leverage our work in particular with European markets, as well as expand our client portfolio within multi-site businesses and organisations of any size that are either looking to roll out into the North or throughout the UK. Know a business that might be looking for just that? Get in touch:
