Our chief wordsmith to judge Digital Experience Awards 2015

We’re delighted to announce that Louise Turner, our chief wordsmith and all-round awards afficionado, is to be a judge at the Digital Experience Awards 2015.
In November Louise will score the shortlisted written entries for her allocated category (kept a secret until the day of the awards) and then watch the finalists’ presentations on the morning of the awards, before helping decide the category winner.

Louise said: “I’m delighted to have been accepted on to the panel of judges for the Digital Experience Awards. I’m looking forward to hearing the finalists tell their story and to peeling back the veneer of the presentations to ensure they can qualify their claims to help us find a worthy category winner.

“Judging awards helps keep our awards entry skills sharp. All of the award entries we’ve written so far this year have been shortlisted and we’re now waiting with baited breath for the awards ceremonies to take place to find out whether our clients will take to the stage.”
