The Mark Hanson award is given to the ‘Brightest Young Communicator’ and celebrates the talented 21st Century communicators who are really making their mark in the industry.
We asked Erin about her time at the awards;
“It was great to be a part of the #Somecomms evening and to meet the fellow judges! Sadly there were no Gwyneth Paltrow moments but some very worthy winners – it was great to see the increase in entries from charities and some really engaging campaigns coming through. With selfie sticks on every table and a Tweetwall it was a very ‘social’ evening and great to meet some of the competition!”
The UK Social Media Communications Awards are now in their sixth year and recognised the individuals, companies and organisations who are using online platforms in fresh, innovative ways. The judging panel features leading professionals in marketing and communications from some of the biggest brands in the UK.
Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees!
