Creative City Awards

Author: Andy Hartwell

The Creative City Awards started out as a celebration of success for businesses who have participated in the BSCI (Business Support for the Creative Industries) programme. This year is the first year the awards have been open to all businesses, regardless of participation on the BSCI programme.

We were lucky to have received support through the BSCI programme. Initially came the feasibility grant which helped us to market and promote our business, mainly through the production and distribution of a self promotion brochure. Then we were successful in our application for the creative space grant, which was a huge help in getting us from working at home to our studio in the Custard Factory.

We were extremely pleased to find out that we have been short listed for this years Creative City Awards. The category we are forward for is the ‘Most Promising New Business Start Up’ Award. The award ceremony takes place at the ICC on the 19th July.
