Central & North Awards 2017: Winners

It was a record breaking awards as over 240 internal communication professionals gathered at the National Railway Museum in York to recognise the and celebrate the winners of IoIC Central & North Awards 2017.   Bringing together the might of the Northern Powerhouse and the Midlands Engine.

IoIC’s Central Regional Director, Rich Baker, and Northern Regional Director, Andy Holt, kicked off the evenings proceedings, saying  ““When we first began to talk about this years' awards, way back in May, we both agreed we wanted to create something special.” 

The Awards were the biggest in their history, with new categories, new judges and their first venture to York. Andy & Rich said  “We have been amazed at your response. A record number of people entered the awards this year, and because of that we have a record number of shortlisted entries”

Over 17 class winners were handed out by the evenings compere Mike Ramsden, a seasoned broadcaster being in the past BBC London’s anchorman and now Head of Broadcast at PLMR

The final award of the evening, The Tom Dawson Award, was presented by IoIC Chief Executive, Jennifer Sproul, recognising the ‘best of the best’ from all print categories, given in honour of Tom a stalwart of judging for many years in our awards competitions, both nationally and in his home region.
