There are just 10 days to go until the Northern Marketing Awards 2014 - which means time is running out to book tickets and tables for what will be the North's largest single gathering of marketers and marketing agencies this year.

The Northern Digital Awards is a new awards celebration for 2015 and is being launched by Don’t Panic Event Management and Prolific North. The awards will recognise the very best in digital campaigns, e-tailing, apps, video and, most importantly, the talent in the North as well as rewarding websites across a number of sectors to reflect the ever-expanding online world that we trade and communicate in.

The shortlist for the Northern Marketing Awards 2014 is revealed today. Almost 200 entries were received this year, an increase of more than 35% over the début awards last year. The awards dinner on Thursday 16 October with the guest speaker John Maltby, CEO of Williams & Glyn bank, is shaping up to be the largest single gathering of the North’s leading marketers and marketing agencies in 2014.
