We’re so happy to have won the Gold Award for Best Internal Publication at the 2012 CIPR Yorkshire & Lincolnshire Pride Awards for ‘U’ magazine with UKAR.
The now multi award-winning quarterly magazine is produced for UKAR colleagues. Judges said: “UKAR and scarlettabbott’s U magazine’s unique and creative design is made ‘by the people, for the people’ and therefore is attractive to its target audience. The publication has helped forge an internal community and increased staff interaction with UKAR and scarlettabbott. Its content informs staff of company policy and decisions, helping it remain transparent and honest during difficult economic times. The informal tone of this magazine is spot on and opportunities for staff to become photographers and ‘news hounds’ have proved to be motivational.”
Woop woop – well done team UKAR and scarlettabbott! We’re also chuffed to bits for our client Morrisons who took home the Gold Award for Internal Communications and the award for Best Use of Measurement & Evaluation for its Own Brand Refresh, and to East Coast and UKAR who were finalists in the Best Event category.
We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for two national awards.
We’re up for Best financial/corporate communication category with Aviva UK, and Best operational communication for One McCain with McCain Foods GB at The Institute of Internal Communication Awards 2012.
There are 39 awards spread across eight sections, covering the kind of work being done everyday by internal communication professionals, including campaigns, innovation, digital media, print media, writing, events and design.
