THE team at RED Publications is celebrating after being shortlisted for 11 awards at the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) Central and North Awards.

The internal communication agency, based at York Eco Business Centre in Clifton Moor, is a finalist in nine categories at the event, including Agency of the Year, Writing Skills, Newsletter and Strategic Communications.

The firm, which won eight titles at last year’s event, is also up for Best Public Sector Communications for its work on City of York Council’s Streets Ahead magazine.

Director Andy Douse said: “It’s a great achievement to have made the shortlist for so many categories, not just for us, but also for our fantastic clients, who we feel proud and privileged to support.

“The standard of entries is extremely high this year, so huge congratulations to all the finalists. It’s an exciting time for RED and I’m very proud of the team and all that we continue to achieve.”

The awards take place on May 24 at the National Space Centre in Leicester.
