Seafish Marketing wins two awards Published:  02 March, 2010

THE Seafish Marketing Communications team has won two awards at the Communicators in Business (Scotland) awards.

Marketing Communications Executive Stephanie Antezana was presented with the ‘Young Communicator of the Year’ award for her work on the Fish & Chip Shop of the Year competition and ‘The Price of Fish?’ publication, among others.

‘The Price of Fish?’ report, designed by Edinburgh-based company White Light Media, won the award for ‘Best One-Off Stakeholder Publication’. The report was produced as background information for industry, politicians and media in the light of the Marine Bills passing through parliament.

James Wood, Marketing Communications Manager at Seafish, said: “These awards demonstrate the quality of the work we’re producing on behalf of the seafood industry. ‘The Price of Fish?’ report was a vital statement of industry’s position at a time when legislation was imminent and environmental NGOs were at the height of their powers. This report is still being used by restaurants and seafood companies up and down the country to explain our work.”

The Longliner, the Seafish industry magazine, was also shortlisted in the ‘Best Stakeholder Publication’ category.

The awards were presented at a black tie dinner in Glasgow on Friday 26 February 2010. The winners were presented with their trophies by broadcaster Shereen Najiani.

Roy Carter, CiB Scotland Director, said: “This year, as ever, the judges had a tough job narrowing down the entries to a shortlist. It’s great to see the high standard of work being produced in Scotland, as well as the fact that despite tough times, people still see the value in benchmarking their work against their peers.”
