The starters’ gun has been fired, and we are delighted to say the process for finding the Top 50 PR companies in the North of England is underway.

As announced on Prolific North earlier today, Mustard is going to be sourcing and analysing the key financial data that will determine which PR companies appear where in this years’ rankings.

Many will be familiar with the process – we will initially be requesting data on balance sheet value, turnover, growth and headcount – and expect the 2015 ranking to be announced early in early July.

This will be the 3rd edition of the PR rankings, which has previously seen Manchester agencies Weber Shandwick, Tangerine and Citypress towards the top of the list.

The closing date for submitted information is Friday June 5th – contact Jo Iaconianni at or 0161 235 5270 for more details. Inclusion is not optional in order to present as authentic and exhaustive a ranking as possible.
