Judging Underway for Local Media Works Awards


Figures from key national advertisers are currently judging entries for this year’s Local Media Works Awards.

Chaired by former Starcom Mediavest Group UK chief executive Stewart Easterbrook, the panel will assess entries from across the media industry who answered a brief set by Virgin Atlantic for the awards which are organised by the NMA's Local Media Works.

The judging panel consists of Hamish Rickman, Virgin Atlantic vice president, marketing; Brandon Bell, Specsavers head of regional and local marketing; Pinky Badhan, Communities Department head of campaigns; Clare Kendrick, BT head of media; Patrick Milne, DFS campaign marketing manager; and Keith Gulliver, Post Office head of marketing.

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

The overall winner will take home the grand prize of two return flights to New York and will be announced at the awards celebration party on 19 October at The Hospital Club in the heart of London.
