Closing date for NW awards

The closing date for the northwest media and creative awards is approaching, and radio stations in the region are urged to submit their free entry before the deadline tomorrow.

The How-Do Awards are set to take place in Manchester and are totally free to enter. The award ceremony will take place on April 24th at Old Trafford hosted by Xfm's Jason Manford.

The judges will be looking for examples of companies or organisations who can clearly demonstrate transparent success in 2007: growth of the company or reversing decline, managing and overcoming adversities, job creation, financial performance, industry accolades, innovation, staff development, leadership etc.

Entries should be literate, justifiable and compelling, written to a maximum of 500 words. The submitting company or organisation must be headquartered or have an operational base within the north west and the entry must relate to its 2007 activities.

The dinner, which will be hosted by Jim Hancock, with after dinner entertainment provided by Jason Manford, is anticipated to attract several hundred of the region's leading media and creative folk drawn from TV, radio, advertising, publishing and PR.
