Reflecting on 2023: 14 Award Nominations in 12 Months…

In just five years, Wildcat Digital has grown from being a one-man band to a team of 20 SEO and PPC experts. Along the way, we’ve created some truly great campaigns which not only meet our clients’ goals but are also award-worthy. Keep reading to learn all about our award-nominated campaigns, including our big win at the 2023 Northern Digital Awards.

Northern Digital Awards 2023

The 2023 Northern Digital Awards were the first awards that Wildcat entered (and won!). To celebrate the achievement, a small team of Wildcats attended the event at the Royal Armouries in Leeds in January.

We were shortlisted for four awards and won one – Best Health and Beauty Campaign with our long-standing client, Your Sexual Health

Our campaign aimed to increase search rankings, drive website traffic and increase booking and, at the time of winning, yielded strong results including:

Between January 2023 – December 2023, the campaign went on to achieve:

We were also shortlisted for Best Low Budget Campaign, Best Small Digital Agency and the Rising Star award.  

Even though we didn’t win, we were positive about what the future holds. Will Hitchmough, MD said, “ Getting four nominations and winning an award is a testament to what we have achieved so far and is a great recognition of the hard work that every member of the team has put into the campaigns to this point.”

Off the back of our success at the Northern Digital Awards, we turned our attention to the Prolific North Awards over the summer. Wildcat was shortlisted for three of the four awards we entered;

Unfortunately, we didn’t take home any trophies this time around, but that didn’t deter us from achieving strong results for our clients.

By the end of summer, we started looking ahead to autumn/winter awards and had a few new campaigns to submit. We were shortlisted for all of the six(!) campaigns we submitted:

Sadly, we walked away empty-handed, but with some great feedback from the judges to help us get over the line next time.

Coming full circle, back to the first awards we attended, a couple of our Team Leaders (Chloe and Jasmine) attended the Northern Digital Awards 2024 in Manchester. We were shortlisted for two awards for campaigns that have really gone the distance over the past couple of years. However, we were up against stiff competition and sadly came away empty-handed.

Looking Ahead…

Towards the end of 2023, we rolled out our five-year plan and company vision. By 2028, it’s our goal to be one of the biggest and best digital marketing agencies in the UK. We aim to have 250+ clients at any one time and over 100 members of staff working on award-winning campaigns.
