Ever popular, our ‘People’ categories always see some of the highest level of entries each year.

Entrants of Apprentice, Rising Star, Student and the more recently added Freelance Hero never cease to impress our judges.

Winning these categories is a tough accolade to achieve. Cindy Simmons, MD of MPA, took time out to catch up with two of last year’s winners on what it meant to them, both professionally and personally.

Fliss Jones, Account Manager, MOBSTA

Winner of MPA Rising Star Award 2023

“Being acknowledged for my efforts was incredibly validating and a huge milestone in my career. Starting out in media can feel really overwhelming – there’s so much to learn and there are so many great opportunities to develop new skills. Knowing you’re supported by the MPA community, and your work has been recognised and applauded, is such a wonderful feeling.

“I’m so proud of my professional and personal progression, and I’m even prouder to be involved with an organisation such as the MPA. Winning has only inspired me more.”

Theo Aarons, Digital Communications Co-Ordinator, We Are Survivors

Winner of MPA Apprentice Award 2023

“Winning last year showed me that the work I’m creating is truly being seen and through this is helping the movement of male survivors breaking their silence”.
