The Northern Agency Guide

The Northern Agency Guide returns for 2021. 

Following the success of 2020's Northern Agency Guide, it returns this year with more information about the most important Digital, PR and Integrated agencies from across the North. 

It will also include case studies, thought leadership pieces, city guides, interviews and more.

The guide, which will feature a selection of agency profiles, includes but goes beyond our pre-existing online rankings of the top agencies in the North - and digs deeper into the information on all of them, providing biographical detail, interviews with key personnel, and a variety of other information about their growth and success. Any Northern agency can be involved.

The Northern Agency Guide is a genuinely useful resource that will be well-thumbed and regularly consulted.

The Northern Agency Guide will be sent all over the North of England

The guide will contain the latest rankings of the Prolific North Top 50s, specifically the Top 50 Digital Agencies in the North, the Top 50 Integrated Agencies, and the Top 50 PR Agencies.

It will also be divided by region, making it a useful guide for navigating the thriving agency landscape in the North of England. 

The guide will include case studies, thought leadership pieces, interviews and more. 

The Northern Agency Guide will:

  • Shine a light on the finest digital, PR and integrated agencies in the region
  • Provide a useful directory of all digital, PR and integrated agencies in the region for brand decisionmakers
  • Become the first port of call for any Marketing Director looking to work with a new agency
  • Be distributed to a vast range of senior marketing personnel from brands across the North and beyond
  • Be an extremely stylish must-have for any marketing department desk or bookshelf


“I’ve always viewed Prolific North as one of the best digital publications, and so it seemed like a no-brainer to be included in their first Northern Agency Guide. The book itself looks great, and more importantly we’ve had a couple of very strong leads come in as a result of our feature.”

Chris Buckley - MD of Pixel Kicks

“We were very excited to be part of the inaugural Northern Agency Guide and to feel part of the wider agency community. It also felt very timely given we’ve all needed a bit of a boost at times during this Covid pandemic. It’s been great for raising our own profile but also great for keeping up- to-date with peers and seeing what they’ve been up to!”

Mike Kirwan - Managing Director at RMS

“We were really proud to be part of the first Northern Agency Guide. The book itself looks super smart, and inside is an incredibly comprehensive collection of agency info. It’s great to see this kind of content being produced in the north and learning more about the brilliant talent we have all around us.”

Sam Rainey - Commercial Director at Home Agency

“The first Northern Agency Guide takes pride of place on our office bookshelf, because we’re massively thrilled to be in the company of some of our most respected peers. It’s nice to highlight the talent we have in the North, and we’re excited to see the 2021 iteration.”

Ruth Harrison-Davies - Senior Account Manager at Scriba PR
