Wirral business wins big at CIM Northern Awards

Wirral based marketing agency, Hitch, are celebrating after winning two categories at the 2017 CIM Northern Awards.

Held at The Monastery in Manchester, the CIM Northern Awards celebrated the insight, creativity and success of the Northern marketing industry, the outstanding campaigns and the talent from across the region. 

There were 17 award categories, 13 of which were open to entries, and the evening was hosted by TV’s Andy Crane.

Diane Earles, Network Manager for CIM, said,

“Congratulations to Hitch for winning the Not for Profit and Best Use of Branding categories, both of which had strong competition.”

Not for Profit Campaign

Their integrated social marketing campaign called ‘Right Care, First Time’ which reduced unnecessary admissions to A&E Departments, won the Not for Profit category.

 Heike O’Leary from Lookers plc, who judged this category said,

“This is a worthy winner based on in-depth research, engaging creative implementation and compelling results, making a meaningful difference to the NHS on a limited budget.”

Best Use of Branding

Their work helping Relate Greater Manchester South to become TLC: Talk, Listen, Change won the Best Use of Branding category. Judge Emma Hunt from Vimto said, 

“This has been excellently and consistently executed across multiple touchpoints – both internal and externally facing. I particularly liked the fact that not only did the rebrand meet the client’s expectations, it also excited and inspired staff and volunteers.”
