A freelance PR consultant from Hemel Hempstead has scooped the annual Freelancer of the Year award for developing and implementing a campaign for the British Library's religious exhibition Sacred.
Rona Levin was commended for her work in showcasing the exhibition which explored Judaism, Islam and Christianity. The coverage Levin garnered for the exhibition gained prominence in TV, radio, print and online.
Among the rare items at the exhibition which took place from April to September 2007 were the Golden Haggadah created in Spain in the early 15th century and a Torah from the 10th century.
Levin beat 153 entrants to scoop the award.
"Rona clearly demonstrated that she had gone the extra mile for the client, achieving a fantastic volume and quality of media coverage that made a very tangible difference to the success of the exhibition," said judge Dominic Shales who is also a director of Paratus Communications. "Her enthusiasm for the brief shone through and her success shows that with a combination of dedication, passion, creativity and smart thinking, a freelance consultant can make an impressive and measurable impact."
