Honour Won by Olson Engage for Second Time in Four Years; Agency also Awarded Honourable Mention for Overall Agency of the Year

ICF, a global consulting and digital services provider, announced that its public relations and social agency, Olson Engage, won two PR Week Awards, including Outstanding Midsize Agency of the year.

This is the second time in four years the agency has won the highly competitive honour. It was also awarded “honorable mention” for the overall Agency of the Year honour, which includes agencies of all sizes.

“With 13 straight years of revenue growth, the agency proved yet again to be one of the best and most consistent agencies in the US,” said PR Week.

The agency also won the Best Viral award for its work on Paqui’s One-Chip Challenge, which raised awareness of the chip brand by calling on consumers and media to eat “the world’s spiciest chip.” The agency was also shortlisted in two additional PR Week categories.

“It is a tremendous honour to have our peers and competitors recognising the impact we are delivering for our clients every day. We are grateful for the incredible talent of our team and for clients who trust us to deliver impactful work, often in new or unique ways,” said Bryan Specht, President for Olson Engage.

The wins continue a strong run of national recognition for the agency, which offers a wide variety of clients consumer, social, experiential, media and multicultural engagement support, as well as corporate affairs and content development and design.

The agency recently won eight Innovation SABRE Awards including Best in Show honours. The firm is also a finalist for two Shorty Awards, which focus on social-media work. In 2017, the agency earned multiple Cannes Lions honours, Shorty Awards and One Show Awards, and was named finalist for the Holmes Report’s Creative Agency of the Year.
