Hear from…

Fiann Blackham, Blackland PR, Silver Award in Best Use of Media Relations for Lowering Fees for Wellington Sports Players:           

The campaign:

After ten years of rising charges for Council-owned sports fields, sports participation in Wellington was falling due to the cost. Blackland PR worked with the region’s sporting codes and schools to form a collective campaign that requested Councils review and lower their costs to make playing sport affordable. Through sustained media pressure centred on the 2023 local government elections, the campaign ultimately won a region-wide independent review into Council sports fees.

About Fiann and Blackland PR:                                                                                                                                                                  Fiann’s media smarts and inventive communications style were first noticed by Blackland’s Directors when he interned during his third year of university, and he was offered a full-time role immediately upon graduating. Since then, he has earned respect from his clients for cunning public affairs strategies and winning media campaigns, and now manages key accounts for the business.
