A massive thank you to everyone who’s entered this year’s Prolific North Awards. We are delighted to announce an increase of around 25% in the number of entries submitted this year following the highly successful inaugural event in 2013.
Our judging panel, including senior figures from Google, ITV, Jaguar Landrover, Welcome To Yorkshire and Screen Yorkshire will be casting their eyes over more than 200 entries across 20 categories.
Each judge will be assessing those categories relevant to their expertise.
Following the judging session in the next few weeks, we will be announcing the shortlist in the middle of March.
The ceremony will take place at The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club on Thursday 1st May. We’re now taking bookings for the event, with already over 170 tickets sold.
Last year’s awards dinner attracted over 600 guests – by some distance the largest single gathering of senior creative and media folk in the North in 2013 – and we are anticipating a further increase in numbers for this year’s dinner for which we will also be unveiling some entertaining surprises.
