An independent panel of industry experts from outside of the province was involved in the judging process, ensuring that the entrants were assessed against national standards.
Jim said, "The competition in the categories we entered was very steep so we are even more proud to have walked away with six awards. Our winning work included campaigns for Kia, Belfast City Council, Fostercare and the Integrated Education Fund. The awards have showcased the calibre of our creative output across a diverse range of clients."

If our client is happy and we are helping them to grow their business then the award is the icing on the cake. It shows that our creative teams are up there with national agencies and it is great to have that recognition."
