“You know a good PR firm when you hear one; at Hill + Knowlton Strategies we have multicultural team members with extensive experience and have for a long time demonstrated successful campaigns for regional and international clients,” Kanyamunyu told Chimpreports on Tuesday.

The SABRE Awards prestige in the public relations industry can only be compared to an Oscar in the music world.

Hill+Knowlton Strategies’ Uganda branch runs several campaigns for top corporate organizations including Emirates and Airtel.


Presented at the recent annual SABRE awards dinner in Barcelona, Spain, the award recognizes the campaign’s insight and understanding of Arab youth to drive conversation and engagement of this key target audience prior to launch of the pan-Arab multi-platform news network in May 2012.

The campaign, dubbed ‘AFKAR’ (“Thoughts”), centered around a regional debate tour hosted by Sky News Arabia which provided a physical and social media platform for influencers, social media personalities and Arab youth to share their views and ideas on relevant topics that impact their daily lives.

The campaign focused on driving conversation and interest among the 15-24 age group, a demographic that makes up over thirty percent of the region’s population, prior to launch of the region’s first 24 hour news network across four screens – television, mobile, tablet and PC.

The SABRE awards are the world’s leading competition for the public relations industry, recognizing excellence in public relations and communications and celebrating campaigns that demonstrate the highest levels of creativity, integrity and effectiveness.

This year the awards attracted more than 2,400 entries.
