Pixel8 and Hilton Celebrate Northern Tech Talent at the Northern Digital Awards
Thursday the 26th of January saw one of the most prestigious awards evenings roll around once again! The Prolific North Northern Digital Awards was live in Leeds at the New Dock Hall at the Royal Armories Museum, and we were the proud owners of a Best Use Of Social Media nomination alongside Hilton Hotels for our #FansOfLondon campaign.
The night got off to a great start, and everyone was ready to celebrate the very best of the best digital campaigns and talent in the area. Businesses filled into the room that was kitted out with glitz stars and glam decor, and straight away began making full use of both the dance floor and the vodka luge! This was followed by a stunning three-course meal that went down a treat, and then the awards began and 80s icon Andy Crane took to the stage!
Our social media star for the evening and Digital Marketing Manager, Sian Ediss, did a great job at keeping the Twitter feed up to date - and our Pixel8 Northern Bingo cards went down a storm yet again.
Sadly, we didn’t win the award on the evening. But we take our hats off to Democracy PR for securing the award with their fantastic No Whey! Campaign.
Below we’ve got a full list of the winners - and we were honoured to be amongst such great company on the fabulous awards evening. We hope to see everyone there again next year!

That’s it for this awards show. Keep an eye out on our blog to see if we manage to snag any new ones for 2017, and if you’re feeling a little nostalgic why not take a look back at The Talk of Manchester Awards where we won Best Full Service Agency, or perhaps the CIM Northern Marketing Awards where we managed to secure Best Low Budget Campaign alongside the mighty Eastlands Trust.
