They came to collect….silver and gold

#TeamDTW enjoyed a great night at CIPR North East’s annual PRide awards – we picked up a gold and two silver awards for our work during 2014.

The gold award, which we won jointly with Hartlepool Borough Council, was for our work on the Hartlepool Vision project.

We worked with the council’s economic development team and used video and mixed photography with futuristic artists’ impressions to create an image of how eight different sites across the town could look following development.

CIPR judges praised the campaign as “a fantastic example of a value for money, innovative public sector campaign – bringing the work of economic development and public relations together to achieve return on investment for the tax payer.”

We’re proud of the results – in just five months the Vision project has led to the direct creation and safeguarding of 300 jobs in Hartlepool, and attracted £1.75 million of new investment to the town.

We’re equally proud of the two silver gongs we won as well. One was for our community relations work with Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group, and the second was for our Internal Communications video for Coast & Country Housing.

Our 'I am Coast & Country' video has been used as the centre of Coast & Country's induction programme and broader and internal communications work

Award nominations are great but good questions are even better

#TeamDTW is off to the artistic surroundings of the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle this Friday for the CIPR’s annual north east Pride awards.

We’re chuffed to be shortlisted for six awards for some of the exciting work we’ve done over the past year with some great clients.

Awards are great but what’s even better is getting the feedback from clients that our work is delivering results for them on the ground.

We have so many tools and platforms available to use now when it comes to sharing stories and engaging communities and stakeholders that it is no wonder people get lost in the maze sometimes.

The number one tip for any successful campaign is to take a step back, think clearly and ask three questions?

  • What do I want to achieve?
  • Who do I need to talk to?
  • How am I going to measure success?

Once you’ve got answers to those three questions you’ve got a good starting point.

If you want to see more about the results you can get when you ask the right questions please have a look at our shortlisted work.

DTW shortlisted for six PR awards

DTW has been shortlisted for six CIPR North East Pride awards.

Four of the awards relate to our PR and marketing work for Further Education colleges in the region. Projects that DTW has delivered on behalf of Newcastle Sixth Form College, Redcar & Cleveland College and Prior Pursglove College have all been shortlisted.

The company has also been shortlisted in the Community Relations and Healthcare categories for the Listening to Cumbria campaign it created and delivered with NHS Cumbria’s communications team.

The Listening to Cumbria campaign was critical to help local communities contribute to and develop an understanding of major changes to the way healthcare services are delivered in the county.

DTW Director Hayley Stewart said: “We’re very pleased with this recognition for our work. We’re working with more and more FE colleges and education academies right across the country and we know that the work we are delivering is having real results on the ground.”

The winners will be announced at the CIPR North East Pride awards dinner, which is being held at the Hilton Hotel in Gateshead on 4 October.
