Founded in 2001, Launch is one of the UK’s leading independent, creative brand PR agencies.  


We’re passionate about helping our clients ‘own’ a creative territory that ignites the agenda and grabs the attention of the people that matter – whether that’s in the media, across social, or out and about in communities. 


Backed by insight, we’re as fluent in staging large-scale consumer campaigns, as we are managing complex reputational issues. And our inherent curiosity means we deliver truly creative thinking and results, every time – and always with care and integrity.


Created by our founder and led by Launch since 2016, The Creative Shootout is an industry-wide, done-in-a-day awards, harnessing the power of the UK’s creative industry, all for a different charity each year.


At the live final in January, finalist agencies are briefed by our Charity of the Year at lunchtime and have just four hours to prepare a creative pitch, which they then present on-stage at BAFTA to the live audience of hundreds.  But in just eight minutes each.  The winning agency walks away with industry fame, a nice pay cheque and a £250,000 media fund to stage the winning campaign for the charity, later on in the year.
