This past Friday marked the end of the waiting game for our three short-listed entries and the chance to see who really knocked our socks off!
All three of our talented shortlisters were invited to attend the annual Fresh Creative Awards held at the Hilton Hotel on Deansgate in Manchester City Centre. Accompanying them were three of the five judges from the Northern Soho team: John Ardern, Anjlee Bhatt, and Kristi Mickaliger.
Our MC for the evening was Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop who provided a night full of song and laughter. The evening started out with a social mixer, which was followed by a sit down dinner and the opportunity to take part in a sock puppet making competition in honour of Lamb Chop.
The winner was fully entitled to their bragging rights for the evening and thanks to the fabulous photos from Fluke Photography, you can take a look at some of the amazing creations that were put together!
Finally, it was time to start the awards ceremony! With various categories before us, we all sat in awe of the Fresh Award winners and their gorgeous artistic submissions. When it was finally our turn, you could cut the tension at the table with a knife!
The Northern Soho Award for Collaboration went to Thumbfood Ltd for their City Runner Advergaming project commissioned by Manchester City Football Club, leaving SheSays Manchester and our Creative Workshops entry from Creative Discovery and Steve Carter Personal Development as our exceptionally worthy runners up.
The night ended with a DJ and dancing while everyone said goodnight and started thinking about their submissions for next year. The Northern Soho Committee is already working on plans for next year and we look forward to seeing all of your great submissions!
Thank you again to the Fresh Awards for this incredible opportunity to highlight the amazing work being done by Northern Soho members and especially to all the entrants that made our job of choosing a winner so difficult!
Congratulations again to Thumbfood, you really knocked our socks off with all your hard work!
