Over the past seven years, the Prolific North Awards has become a staple of the industry calendar for hundreds of business leaders, marketers, creatives and more.

We believe in the power of events like this to bring people together.

The Prolific North Awards, sponsored by YouGov, offers the North's agencies and brands an opportunity to shine and to reward teams for their outstanding work.

Though we are all experiencing significant change and uncertainty in navigating the Covid-19 pandemic, we believe it's still important to offer this platform.

So, the Prolific North Awards will be different this year. Judging sessions will happen virtually this summer, and then winners will be revealed via an online ceremony on Tuesday September 8th 2020. The ceremony will be free to attend; everyone is welcome to join to see the winners revealed, hear insights from the judging panel and catch up with friends.

We were really excited to all be together again for this big celebration, but after careful consideration, this looks like the best way for our whole community to be able to enjoy the awards this year.

Jonathan Pitts, Senior Business Development Manager at headline sponsors YouGov, said: "YouGov is delighted to sponsor the Prolific North Awards to celebrate excellence in the North's creative sectors. In the challenging times we're currently in, it’s incredibly important to recognise and reward outstanding campaigns and talent."

The late entry deadline has now been extended to Friday July 24th - see the below link to enter - and the shortlist will be announced on Thursday 20th August. More details about the event still to come. In the meantime, you can always get in touch with us on hello@prolificnorth.co.uk to discuss.
