Blackstock Consulting, in partnership with our clients Bidwells and Perkins&Will, went toe-to-toe against some of the biggest global PR and communications agencies in New York and came out as runner-up in ANA Business Marketing’s Global Ace Awards in the Best Campaign Under $250,000 category.

It’s a fantastic result, especially considering the competition – which included heavyweights McCann and Havas – and great to see the impact of our Radical Regeneration Manifesto being recognised internationally.

The campaign for property consultancy Bidwells and architectural firm Perkins&Will has already won numerous awards including Best Thought Leader Strategy, Best Use of Thought Leadership and Best Limited Budget Campaign at the Drum Awards.

Focusing on unlocking the economic potential of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, the campaign led by Blackstock Consulting ushered through a host of policy changes including its manifesto recommendations on development corporations and planning reform being adopted by the government, and 40 individual projects achieving fast-track status for development. More than 25 firms backed Blackstock’s campaign including Argent, L&Q, Barratt Developments and Legal & General.
