Leading insurer Pru Life UK earned an international Gold Quill for its 2019 Prudential RideLondon media campaign, a recognition bestowed by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). The award was presented at IABC’s Virtual World Conference held in the United States on June 14-17, 2020.
Pru Life UK received the 2020 Gold Quill Award of Merit in the Programs Category – Media Relations, and was among the four winning entries from the Philippines this year.
The award-winning campaign revolved around Prudential RideLondon, the world’s largest cycling festival sponsored by Pru Life UK’s parent company Prudential plc, in which the Philippine media and cyclists were actively engaged during the two-day cycling event on August 3-4, 2019. The campaign generated significant publicity and media coverage, as well as reinforced the Company’s brand awareness and commitment to helping consumers lead healthier lives.
Pru Life UK was recognized for its innovative plan and tactical approach that was thoughtfully executed to meet its business needs and objectives. The campaign was also lauded for achieving impressive return on investments, coupled with strong participations and sustained publicity prior to and throughout the event.
Earlier this year, Pru Life UK also received the Silver Quill from the IABC Asia Pacific for its 2018 Prudential RideLondon media relations campaign.
