CHICAGO – Olson Engage is a finalist for PR Week’s 2016 Midsize Agency of the Year Award, the respected trade publication announced Dec. 8.

PR Week Awards are among the public-relations industry’s highest honors, and they are no stranger to Olson Engage.  The Chicago-based agency won the Midsize Agency of the Year honor, along with the overall Agency of the Year award, in 2014. And it’s predecessor agency, Dig Communications, won Small Agency of the Year in 2009.

Separately, Olson Engage’s work for Skittles is also a finalist for Product Brand Development Campaign of the Year. The campaign, which featured Seattle Seahawks Running Back Marshawn Lynch, was recently named the top media-relations campaign of the year by the Bulldog Reporter, which recently awarded the effort the Grand Prize at its Media Relations Awards.

All told, the “shortlist” honored 155 total finalists across 35 categories. The winners will be announced at the PR Week Awards Dinner in New York March 17.
