The Big Chip Awards 2012 (last week)

13 July 2012 | by Chris Marsh

Time really does fly by when you're having fun, a week has passed since what was the biggest event of the digital creative industry's calendar - The Big Chip Awards.

Held at the Palace Hotel, Melbourne was kindly invited again to sponsor. As we understand the importance of the event (showcasing the North's digital creative talent) and also the fact tat we're keen to support our clients and friends, of course we agreed.

Over 400 like-minded industry folk packed the grand venue where we treated to a 3 course meal and entertained by Jason Cook (look out for him on your screens in the future) and presented by Shaun Fensom from the organisers, Manchester Digital.

This was the 14th annual event with 22 awards for categories such as Best Use of Visual Design, Best Use of Animation, Best Application of Technology, Best Use of Social Media and of course the Grand Prix (best of the best, presented by me!).

Winners on the evening included TBWA (photo above), Tyneside Cinema and Code Computerlove, of our clients D2 Digital, Cahoona and Mosquito. Shortlisted included our friends Space 48, PushON, I-COM, The E Word and Brazen PR.

Following the awards we had the chance to blow the cobwebs away at Copperface Jacks, Friday morning wasn't a pretty sight...

More photos now up on our Facebook page! Go and tag yourself and your friends.

See you next year Biiig Chiiip!
