#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.
