CREATIVE agency The Beautiful Meme has been shortlisted for the second year running in the Transform Awards.

The York company won gold in the Best Tone Of Voice category in last year’s awards, which attract entries from across Europe, for its work for The Student Housing Company.

This year The Beautiful Meme, which is based in Walmgate, is shortlisted in the Best Financial Brand category for its work for UK-wide financial advice brand Bellpenny, a company backed by Oaktree Capital Management.

The winners will be announced on March 19 at a ceremony in London.

The Beautiful Meme was instructed by the English National Ballet earlier this year to create a high-profile advertising campaign for the dance company in collaboration with fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.
