We are very excited to announce that we have been nominated for no less than 9 Recommended Agency Awards this year, topping our 8 nominations in 2010. The RAR are one of our favourite awards of the year because they are based on independent research of client companies reviewing their marketing partners. And last year we were runner up in 7 categories, and we lifted the gong for RAR Best in Advertising 2010.

The RAR aims to produce an independent scoring system for agencies across the UK, where are agencies are ranked by discipline and the quality of their work in a range of categories. Our average ratings in the latest research we scored an incredible 100% for creativity, effectiveness, client service, professionalism and strategic thinking. Making us one of the highest rated agencies in the UK.

This year we are in the running for the following:

• Best in Advertising 2011
• Best in Integrated 2011
• Best in Direct Marketing 2011
• Best in Sales Promotion 2011
• Best in Creativity 2011
• Best in Effectiveness 2011
• Best in Professionalism 2011
• Best in Client Service 2011
• Best in Strategic Thinking 2011

This follows on from a fantastic year in 2010 where we picked up numerous creative awards and were named Marketing Industry UK Advertising Agency of the Year.

Debbie Watt, Client Service Director, said: “It’s fantastic to be up for so many awards at the RARs again. Just being nominated gives everyone a great sense of pride. The Recommended Agency Register is a fantastic scheme, where clients get to rate the agencies they work with. This year, our ratings have been incredibly high. It’s a great testament to the team in all areas of the business that we’re delivering for our clients, in what is still a very difficult market for many.”

The winners are announced 31st March 2011, at an awards ceremony hosted in London.
