Up against huge players in the communications world, we were delighted to gain recognition in both the Best Video and Best Website categories.

Our Trade Union training video won the Best Video category, beating off big players Nautilus International and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists in the process.

The panel of expert judges commented… “We liked this reps training video for its good story-telling and professional production. We liked the way it demonstrated the clear role of the union in a fictional disciplinary case and thought it would be useful part of a training course.”

The judges commented “This is a responsive website, with a modern clear design and hierarchy of content and prominent social sharing options on the home page.

"We liked the wide range of content available and the use of a poll as an engagement tool. There is also a clear membership sign-up option.”

When comparing the huge resources behind our competitors, we are pretty proud of our success. Frances O’Grady (TUC General Secretary) even took time out of compering the event to personally congratulate us, exclaiming “Wow you guys do so much!”
