Their winning campaign was called ‘Launching EU beers for the undecided masses’ for Little Valley Brewery, also based in Yorkshire, and capitalised on the EU Referendum.  Professor Fraser McLeay from Northumbria University, who judged this category sponsored by The CIM Benevolent Fund, said “This was an excellent demonstration of theory in practice, and how client and agency can work together to co-create and develop successful campaigns, even on small budgets.”
