Cork businesses urged to enter Digital Marketing Awards

It's that time of year again - the Cork Chamber Business School are accepting entries for the 2016 Cork Digital Marketing Awards.

Cork businesses are urged to showcase their digital successes and achievements by entering the awards. There are 16 categories this year, including 'Best Use of Emoji'.

“The importance of digital marketing simply cannot be ignored, with 2 million Irish people checking Facebook every day, 1 in 4 on Snapchat, and entire conversations now take place through emojis," says Aoife Dunne, Business School Manager. 

"Digital marketing is changing how people engage with the world and how we do business. Cork businesses really have their finger on the digital pulse and these Awards are an ideal opportunity to highlight and acknowledge their hard work in the ever-changing digital landscape.”

The overall winners last year were Partnership International. “The Cork Digital Marketing Awards were an amazing success and we were honoured not only to attend but also to receive two awards, including the overall Grand Prix.

"Being honoured by our peers in Cork, our home city, meant a great deal to us as a company. For Partnership International, winning the awards was a tremendous privilege and has brought us significant recognition both in Cork and country-wide.”

To enter the Cork Digital Marketing Awards, complete an online application form here.

Entry is free and is open to all businesses in the Cork region, nominations will close on September 2.

Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on October 27 where KC, Programme Director of Red FM, will MC the event.
