Our Monday morning was made infinitely more enjoyable today, as we found out that we had been nominated for a Digital Entrepreneur Award in the ‘Digital Business of the Year’ category. Out of 78 businesses that entered the category, we have made it to the final 7.

This award recognises digital businesses in the UK who are at the forefront of the digital industry, be they marketing agencies, media companies or web designers. There is some tough competition in our group of nominees, including such great companies as Bristol’s Bespoke, London’s Studio 48 and fellow Manchunians Red Cow Media among others.

A spokesperson for the Digital Entrepreneur Awards said; “With a phenomenal response to this year’s awards, the shortlisting panel had an incredibly tough job creating the finalists. Congratulations go to the companies that have made it to the final through their innovation and passion for all things digital.”

The DEAs are now in their ninth year, however this year is the first time we’ve ever put ourselves forward for an award, making it even more of an honour to be nominated. If all goes well, when the winners are announced at the glamorous ceremony at The Palace Hotel on 11 November, we will be able to add a Digital Entrepreneur Award to our trophy shelf. We think it will sit nicely next to our Prolific North, RAR and Drum Network awards.

Until then, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed while we continue to work in the digital domain, be that in web design, SEO or social media marketing, bolstered by the knowledge that we must be doing something right!
