Mediaworks takes home another North East Business Award, just weeks after their success at the regional heats.
We find out more:
On April 27th, the grand final of the 2017 North East Business Awards took place at Hardwick Hall in Sedgefield. The region’s finest talent were out in force, all hoping to build on their previous success and take home the overall prize within their respective category.
Shortlisted in the Digital & Social Media Award category following their success at the Northumberland and Tyneside heat back in March, Mediaworks were announced as overall winners, beating off competition from fellow regional winners Maxim Facilities Management and HomeFuels Direct.
The category looks for excellent website design, a demonstrable use of web technology and innovative use of internet technology in order to improve business performance. Mediaworks were praised for their “awareness and adoption of digital solutions” for their work creating the app in support of the Great North Snowdogs mass-participation art event.
The event helped to unite the region all in the name of a good cause Ñ supporting St Oswald’s Hospice and the outstanding work they do. In fact, new figures released by the charity show that the trail was enjoyed by some 676,056 visitors, raising £367,500 for the charity. Mediaworks is incredibly proud to have played a part in this fantastic charity endeavour.
Speaking of Mediaworks’ continued success, Managing Director Brett Jacobson said: “Winning this award is a great achievement for everyone involved at Mediaworks, especially since it recognises some of the North East’s most innovative and forward-thinking companies. We’d also like to extend our congratulations to all of the other winners. ”
On the same day as their North East Business Awards win, Mediaworks was shortlisted in the Best Use of Search category at the prestigious Big Chip Awards 2017. Let’s hope the agency can continue their celebrations by taking home the award at the ceremony, which takes place on June 15th 2017.
