The Prolific North Awards celebrate excellence and recognise and reward outstanding campaigns and exceptional talent in the creative and media industries across the North.

The Prolific North Awards is going virtual for 2020

Over the past seven years, the Prolific North Awards has become a staple of the industry calendar for hundreds of business leaders, marketers, creatives and more.

We believe in the power of events like this to bring people together. The Prolific North Awards offers the North’s agencies and brands an opportunity to shine and to reward teams for their outstanding work.

Though we are all experiencing significant change and uncertainty in navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe it’s still important to offer this platform.

So, the Prolific North Awards will be different this year. Judging sessions will happen virtually this summer, and then winners will be revealed via an online ceremony on Tuesday September 8th 2020. The ceremony will be free to attend; everyone is welcome to join to see the winners revealed, hear insights from the judging panel and catch up with friends.

We were really excited to all be together again for this big celebration, but after careful consideration, this looks like the best way for our whole community to be able to enjoy the Awards this year.

The late entry deadline has now been extended to Friday July 24th and the shortlist will be announced on Thursday 20th August. More details about the event still to come. In the meantime, you can always get in touch with us on to discuss.

The Awards

The eighth annual Prolific North Awards will celebrate excellence in the North’s creative sectors. The awards have a legacy of recognising the campaigns that really made an impact across the country, and the talent driving the creative industries forward – and this year is no different.

From marketing and media, to PR and social media, the awards will be judged by an esteemed panel of industry leaders and experts. The judging is a rigorous two stage process including pre-scoring to determine shortlists and a judging meeting where entries are evaluated in detail to decide the winning entries.
