Clearsilver and Leeds City Council win Best Creative Comms at the #UnAwards15

On the 3rd December, Clearsilver and the team from Leeds City Council caught the train to Birmingham to attend the Comms2Point0 UnAwards. As you can gather from the name, this isn’t your average awards ceremony. Held at the Everyman Cinema, the awards were extremely cool, and refreshingly different to the usual black tie affair.

Leeds City Council was shortlisted for the campaign that we developed on their behalf – #whatsyourstory – and we are delighted to tell you that we won! We received a bottle of prosecco tied with an engraved medal, and we were all over the moon. (The prosecco may or may not have disappeared by the time we arrived back into Leeds that evening… oops.)

After the awards had been handed out, it was time to reveal the afternoon’s film. We returned to our seats to find a big bag of pick-and-mix – which, to my delight, included a packet of retro parma violets – and we were treated to a showing of cult classic Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

After laughing for almost a solid 90 minutes, we left the screen, and were presented with a feast of nachos and fries in the foyer. The Comms2Point0 team certainly know how to please a crowd! Celebrating with a glass of fizz and great company, we were all very proud of the recognition that we received for our hard work.

We’d like to thank the team at Comms2Point0 for hosting such a unique and enjoyable event, as well as the team at Leeds City Council, and the inspirational case studies that turned #whatsyourstory into reality. Coupled with our Silver win at CIPR PRide, we’re certainly racking up some amazing accolades to end the year. Find out more about our #whatsyourstory campaign by reading this blog post about the campaign, or reading the full case study here.

Go team Clearsilver!
