50 Days Left to Enter Local Media Works Awards

Media planners have 50 days left to enter the Local Media Works Awards, powered by JICREG, by answering a brief set by Airbus with local media at its heart.

The awards, which offer entrants a chance of winning £1,000 of Apple vouchers, challenge entrants to plan a campaign highlighting Airbus’ credentials as an employer in local communities across the UK.

The responses must have local and regional media at its core, and will be judged on innovative thinking about the opportunities afforded by local media.

The awards cover five categories; best original thinking, best strategy, best use of content, best use of local targeting, and best use of multi-platform.

A judging panel chaired by former Starcom Mediavest Group UK chief executive Stewart Easterbrook will assess entries from across the media industry. The judging panel is:

  • Brandon Bell, Specsavers head of regional and local marketing;
  • Andy Bolden, GlaxoSmithKline Europe media director / global head of trading;
  • Owen Brace, DWP deputy director of communications;
  • Kathryn Edwards, Airbus ‎employment marketing advisor;
  • Justin Fenton, Local Media Works head of marketing;
  • Patrick Milne, DFS campaign marketing manager;
  • Craig Nayman, Archant chief commercial officer, and Local Media Works chairman.
