On Wednesday 15 May 2019 the leading creatives outside of the M25 gathered together at The Drum Roses Awards ceremony in Manchester to show that there is life outside London. 

BBC Creative won the coveted Grand Prix along with a host of other awards, Creative director at Iris and member of the Roses judging panel, Simon Mannion said: “The work entered by the BBC may have been varied but they did all share one common theme – craft. To cut through, resonate and make your work stick in the mind of the average impatient punter takes some doing."

Picking up The Chair's Award, selected by Lisa Campana from Wunderman was Golley Slater Cardiff. Lisa said "This entry blended humour with human insight, great scriptwriting, creative direction and casting. Humour takes the starring role and the product takes a backseat, which is a brave move and very rare in the automotive sector. When I first watched it, it made me literally chuckle out loud and left a smile in my mind."

We have seen some outstanding talent in 2019, congratulations to all nominees and award winners and thanks for giving us something to celebrate! 
Till next year..

The awards will be back for 2020, opening at the end of 2019.
