Prolific North Creative Awards Winners: Where are they now?

Prolific North Creative Awards 2024

As the final deadline to enter the Prolific North Creative Awards is fast approaching, we caught up with some of our previous winners to find out what they’ve been up to over the past year.

You have until 19 April to enter the Creative Awards, which first launched in 2023 with the backing of creative experts. These awards showcase some of the region’s brightest and boldest creative individuals, teams and organisations across the North of England and Scotland.

By entering the Creative Awards, it can help raise your profile, get your work in front of our panel of industry-leading judges, and can lead to new clients, work or collaborations. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our previous winners had to say:

Crowd Network

Crowd Network won the award for Best Audio last year with Eliza: A Robot story. Louise Gwilliam, Eliza’s Executive Producer and Crowd Network’s Talent Director, shares why Crowd Network entered and what the creative company has been up to since winning in 2023.

“Eliza was a Manchester-based production. The story was set in Manchester, it was created in partnership with Manchester Women’s Aid and it was the concept of a Manchester-based writer. We wanted to enter Eliza into an awards that recognised Manchester creators and the incredible talent on display here. Prolific North has also been really supportive of Crowd as a business since our launch in 2020,” says Gwilliam.

“Before the award was announced, the presenter highlighted that a priority of the awards was to recognise bravery in creative projects in the North West. It meant so much for the bravery involved in telling this story to be acknowledged in the city where it was made.

“Since winning the award, Crowd has diversified its offering and launched a branded podcast division to run alongside our original shows. We have already worked with North West companies such as Manchester Airport, alongside global brands such as Greenpeace and Red Bull.”

Dead Pixel Films

Manchester-based production company Dead Pixel Films won the award for Production Company last year. On winning at the awards, Cal Thompson, co-owner and director of photography at Dead Pixel Films says: “This was the first time winning anything as a company and to now say ‘we’re award-winning’ feels pretty special.

“Setting up our own studio, hiring three new staff members and being recognised by the industry at such a big event were our biggest highlights of 2023.”
