The Communications team has been shortlisted for 'In-house Team of the Year' and 'Stunt of the Year' in the Golden Hedgehog Awards 2014.

The team, which looks after UKTV's consumer, network and internal communications, is nominated in the highly coveted 'In-house Team of the Year' category, which celebrates exceptional talent and outstanding in-house campaigns.

Additionally, the team's hugely successful campaign to launch new channel, Drama, has been recognised by the judges, who shortlisted its 'Mr Darcy' PR stunt for the 'Stunt of the Year' award. To mark the launch of Drama in July, the communications team commissioned a giant 12ft statue of Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice and placed it in London's Serpentine Lake, generating top-tier international coverage and significantly driving viewing viewers.

The Golden Hedgehog Awards celebrate excellence and recognise and reward exceptional talent in the PR and Communications Industry across the UK.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 20th March 2014.
