ScotlandVotes has been shortlisted for Digital Campaign of the Year at the 2011 European Public Affairs Awards.
We need your support to help us win the award. Please follow this link bit.ly/rqsT15 and in the Digital Campaign section vote for ScotlandVotes. Feel free to vote for entries in the other categories, but you don’t have to.
This nomination is a great accolade for ScotlandVotes and Weber Shandwick and follows hot on the heels of our win at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations Scottish PRide Awards, where we picked up Gold for the Best Website.
Here is what the judges said about our nomination for the PRide Awards:
“Weber Shandwick Scotland started with a bold objective- to become the authority on the Scottish elections. With this highly usable website and supportive media campaign which saw their team grab hold of the issue, they’ve succeeded admirably. The interactivity of the website gave it the feel of an online version of Peter Snow’s infamous ‘swingometer’. The involvement of politicians and respected bloggers gave the site much-needed gravitas.”
Thanks to you the users of ScotlandVotes, whether on the website, Facebook, Twitter or those who attended our hustings online or in person. We had a great time covering the 2011 Scottish Parliament election and we are already working on setting up the new boundaries for the next Westminster election!
