Awarding Service

We love producing great work for our clients and in-house concepts but it’s nice to receive some recognition from your peers that you’re doing something right.

So we are proud to be named on the shortlist for Best Large Agency in the UK Public Sector Communications Awards 2015

The UK Public Sector Communication Awards celebrate and reward excellent communication strategies and campaigns, teams and individuals in local and national government, emergency services and not-for-profit bodies from across the UK.

The awards take place on Thursday July 9 at The Emirates Stadium in London which is great news for our PR manager Chris Sealey, who’s an Arsenal fan.

It’s the latest acknowledgement of a strong year for #TeamDTW. In March we won the PRMoment award for Internal Communications Campaign of the Year jointly with Coast & Country Housing for the “I am Coast & Country campaign, based around our video.

This followed on from winning the CIPR North East’s Pride Gold award for the Hartlepool Vision project jointly with Hartlepool Borough Council.

We’re looking forward to it already!

#PSCAwards

PS – in other good news this week we’re back in PR Week’s Top 150 PR agencies in the UK – making an appearance at number 142 – which also puts us in the top 10 agencies in the north of England.

#Winning

Following last night’s PRMoment awards in Manchester, we’ve got another item to add to the #TeamDTW trophy cabinet.

We won the award for the Internal Communications Campaign of the Year jointly with Coast & Country Housing for the “I am Coast & Country” campaign, based around the video we created for Coast & Country Housing.

The “I am Coast & Country” video has been used extensively as the centre of Coast & Country’s induction programme, internal communications and in broader external communications work. Coast & Country Housing is the largest registered provider of accommodation in the Redcar and Cleveland Borough, owning and managing over 10,000 properties.

We were also shortlisted for our work with Hartlepool Borough Council. The “Hartlepool – A Vision for the future” campaign 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. 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.

“And the Nominations are…”

DTW has received two nominations in the prestigious PRMoment awards 2015.

In the Public Sector Campaign of the Year category we have been nominated jointly with Hartlepool Borough Council for our work on the “Hartlepool – A Vision for the future” campaign.

We worked with the council’s economic development team to create a communications strategy for the Vision which used a PR-led approach to inspire local communities to get involved.

The campaign 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.

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.

We have also been nominated in the Best Use of Video category for the “I am Coast & Country” video for Coast & Country Housing. The video has been used extensively as the centre of Coast & Country’s induction programme, internal communications and in broader external communications work.

Coast & Country Housing is the largest registered provider of accommodation in the Redcar and Cleveland Borough, owning and managing over 10,000 properties.

The PRMoment awards celebrate excellence and recognise and reward outstanding campaigns and exceptional talent in the UK PR and Communications sector. The awards attracted over 650 entries from 200 companies from across the UK.

#TeamDTW is looking forward to arriving in Manchester in style for the awards ceremony on 11 March.
