2016 at Latitude was a year of dressing nicely, heading to swanky venues and partying late into the night.

This was – of course – outside regular working hours. (Almost) every time it was because we had been invited to one of the biggest awards ceremonies in the industry.

Manchester, London and Paris played host to the Latitude clan, as we racked up a total of 30 nominations throughout the year, for our work in SEO, PPC, Display and Creative.

And our air miles didn’t go to waste either. We were announced as winners on no less than five separate occasions.

Below is a round-up of Latitude’s awards success in 2016, the most decorated year in our history (until 2017, we hope).

Business of the Year – WINNERS

FSB Awards

Our crowning achievement. After an already successful year, we were named “Business of the Year” in November at the FSB Awards in Manchester. Bosses Rick Lamb and Andrew Kimberley, pictured below, were at the Hilton to collect this prize.

Digital/Technology Business of the Year – WINNERS

FSB Awards

And at the same event, we also received the Digital/Technology Business of the Year accolade. In a tough category, we were proud to be recognised as the leading digital business in the region, for the work we did over the last 12 months.


Advertising Campaign of the Year – WINNERS

Money Marketing Awards

Our SEO and Creative teams combined to produce a fun, innovative piece of content for London & Country Mortgages. The results, measured in terms of shares, views and backlinks, were incredible – and it was awarded the esteemed Advertising Campaign of the Year prize, at a national awards ceremony.


Best Non-Paid Search Campaign – WINNERS

Drum Digital Trading Awards

That same campaign was also announced as the Best Non-Paid Search Campaign of the year, at the Drum Digital Trading Awards. Unfortunately, most of the team were in Paris at another event on this night, and so had to wait until they returned to work before lifting the trophy in celebration.


Best Content Marketing Campaign – Finance – WINNERS

Northern Marketing Awards

Same client, different campaign. Just to mix it up a little, we submitted some other work we had completed for London & Country Mortgages for an award – and were once again successful. Our content marketing strategy proving to be incredibly valuable to the client.
