Testimonials

Take a look at what some of our previous winners had to say:

"At Air TV we were massively proud to pick up not just one, but two Prolific North Awards in 2019. Our office shelf now proudly shows off awards for “Best Documentary” and “Best Production Company” to all who pass, and it was humbling and exciting to pick up the trophies at such a dynamic event. As a relatively new Yorkshire-based TV production company, we had never entered these awards before, but it was great to be even considered against such highly regarded companies across the North. Winning these awards has brought us closer to loads of inspirational and dynamic companies across the patch - but above all else it was great to have been part of this massive celebration of all the great creative work going on across the North."Air Tv

"Here’s to all the small, prolific creative studios in the North!" Are the words that splurged out of my mouth that evening whilst hoisting up our award. I felt overwhelmingly proud that a small studio like ours could not only win such a category but also be based outside the big cities. It’s what these awards are about, they celebrate ‘all’ that’s North. The media landscape is changing and it's exciting that brands are looking further afield in some instances for something a little different and winning awards helps us on that quest to prove we are a viable option." Wash Studio

"There’s so many different awards in the PR industry now, we’ve become very selective which we go for. However, the Prolific North Awards are an exception, partly down to the quality of entries and their broad geographical focus. Because Prolific North is so recognised, they also carry a certain kudos; for our team, but also for partners and prospects. Winning Small PR Agency of the Year was great for Prohibition; I’m fairly sure it has nudged us on to certain tender lists, and it’s prompted no end of positive conversations." Will Ockenden, Director & Owner, Prohibition
