This year’s Northern Marketing Awards hosted by Prolific Northtook place at Lancashire County Cricket Club and as proud sponsors of the event Pitch presented the award for Best Large Agency. Our very own Rebecca Hall presented the award to Jaywing, whom the judges described as a “unique” agency and “quite different” to the others in the category.
A total of 18 categories are covered by the Northern Marketing Awards; the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all with highlights including the acceptance speeches interspersed with comedic gems such as Pelican Communications declaring that we should remember their name, “because you’ll be screaming it later!”.
At only two years old with almost 400 attendees and over 100 participant businesses in The Northern Marketing Awards this year, the organisation is quickly gaining credibility and prestige. The most illustrious award of the evening, the Grand Prix prize was awarded to BJL & Yorkshire and Humber Adoption Consortium due to their “tangible and extremely impactful” campaign. The judges felt this campaign deserved the Grand Prix award due to it directly transforming peoples’ lives, sharing new insights with its target audiences; the campaign aimed to highlight the truth about adoption.
Pitch also ran a Bonus Award prize-giving to win a spa break weekend at the luxurious Titanic Spa. Congratulations to winner Julia Gaffey of CheethamBellJWT – we sincerely hope you enjoy your weekend of pampering!
The NM Awards ceremony showcased some fantastic creative talent in the North of England; Prolific North should take huge pride in providing such a crackin’ celebration of local talent, something we at Pitch are truly passionate about supporting.
Cheers Prolific North, see you all next year!
