Tony Fay Public Relations Named Small Agency of the Year by PRNEWS

The honor was presented at the Lighthouse in New York City, with the agency earning a national Platinum Award for the highest honor in its category.

Dallas-based Tony Fay Public Relations has been named the nation’s Small Agency of the Year by PRNEWS, a leading U.S. media and communication organization.

The honor was presented at the Lighthouse in New York City, with the agency earning a national Platinum Award for the highest honor in its category.

“I’m proud that we’re being recognized as a leader in the public relations industry for the incredible results we deliver daily,” Tony Fay, founder and CEO of Tony Fay Public Relations, said in a statement. “We’re grateful to have the client roster that we do, and being able to deliver for our friends and partners is what makes this work worthwhile. This award is as much for those companies, those brands, and those people, as it is for us.”

For more than two decades, the Platinum Awards have been hailed as one the most coveted and competitive awards in the fields of public relations, communications, and marketing.

Tony Fay Public Relations was one of only four agencies to receive three or more nominations at the event. It was also a finalist in two Campaign of the Year categories—Best Anniversary Campaign (for the Perot Museum of Nature & Science 10th Anniversary), as well as the Best Entertainment Campaign (Troy Aikman’s Highway to Henryetta).

The selection process included a panel of more than 200 judges.

“The Platinum Awards recognize the top people, teams and campaigns in the fields of public relations, communications and marketing,” Erika Bradbury, editorial director at PRNEWS, said in a statement. “From recognizing the top PR professionals of the year to the most innovative, results-driven campaigns, as well as many internally focused initiatives, the Platinum Awards stand out as a unique program that celebrates the tremendous depth and breadth of the industry, as no other program can.”

Tony Fay Public Relations counts some of the biggest brands in sports and entertainment as clients, while also supporting the growth of philanthropic entities that make communities stronger.
