I was very lucky enough to be a guest of Prolific North at their first Northern Marketing Awards on Wednesday 3rd July. Aside from the fact that this was a great evening with a chance to meet hundreds of people from the sector, the real treat was the number of Agency Life employers who were short-listed for awards and the number who went on to win those awards.
It was great to see our new friends at Stein IAS walk away with 6 awards, including Best Large Agency, having been short-listed for 13 – a real morale boost for any Agency Life intern lucky enough to be working there in the next academic year.
Nice news too for Mosquito Digital to win the Consumer Durable Prize – hoping that some of our interns this year had a small part to play in that. Exciting too that Photolink picked up the award for retail with their work for Regis UK – a great boost to those interns joining them in September, whilst our friends at Mediacom won the Mobile Marketing category.
All in all there was at least one Agency Life employer in all but a couple of the award categories. This should be a great motivator for Agency Life interns knowing that just because you’re not in London, doesn’t mean you’re not working with world-class companies.
