The Prolific North Awards celebrate excellence and reward outstanding campaigns in the creative and media industries across the North.

Here are the categories and a look at what it took to get nominated.

SEO Agency of the Year

CandidSky’s strong SEO campaign results and client satisfaction offer an insight into why they’ve been shortlisted in this category.

Search Campaign of the Year

CandidSky’s work with Evolution Money has been chosen as a nominee for Search Campaign of the Year.

Evolution Money are a direct lender for homeowner loans of up to £25,000.

Their niche offering of bespoke and affordable secured loans was up against some tough competition in the search space as there are so many other ways for their target audience to get a loan.

CandidSky’s search campaign delivered major improvements in organic search visibility and hit the commercial targets set by Evolution Money.

Thomas Oben, Head of Digital at Evolution Money, commented:

“We’ve worked with Candid Sky for a number of years now, and have really been reaping the benefits of their stellar work. With a full service package, they’ve delivered everything from design, CRO, SEO, and PPC for us. Their approach, enthusiasm and expertise in the sector means that not only is all the work delivered on time and to budget, but also hitting and sometimes even exceeding targets.”
