We are excited to announce the Prolific North Champions Awards, which celebrates the incredible companies and talent across the North, is returning next year.  

Renowned as Prolific North’s biggest flagship awards, the live awards ceremony will be hosted on 9 May 2024 at Emirates Old Trafford, Lancashire Cricket Club.

Over the past 11 years, the Champions Awards continues to recognise the individuals, teams or companies who go above and beyond across the creative, digital and tech sectors to put the North on the map.

To recognise agencies, productions and creatives, there are plenty of categories to pick from including: New Agency to Watch, Independent Agency of the Year, Creative Studio of the Year and more.

Whether it’s a campaign or innovation you want to shout about, there’s a variety of categories to choose such as: B2B Marketing Campaign of the Year, B2C PR Campaign of the Year, Innovation of the Year. 

Proud of your tech-driven company or work? There’s a number of categories you can enter including: Tech Company of the Year, Tech for Good Award, Tech Platform of the Year, and Web/Product Development Agency of the Year.

For those celebrating teams and organisations, awards up for grabs include: New Brand to Watch, Best Workplace Award, Best In-House Marketing Team, Fastest Growing Company of the Year and plenty more.

There will be three free-to-enter categories this year, two of which celebrate talented individuals in the North. They are Prolific Leader of the Year, Prolific Rising Star of the Year and Not-for-profit campaign of the year. Take a look at the full list of categories and criteria here.
