Marketing Innovation Awards 2013

Libraries and Archives throughout Wales run innovative marketing activities – often with limited resources. These awards aim to celebrate the valuable work that library and archive staff do to bring their services to new audiences and to develop new activities for existing users. The awards give library and archive staff at all levels the chance to win national recognition for their work in promoting their service.

Here is the list of winners from 2013…

Many libraries in Wales run innovative activities, often with limited resources. These awards aim to celebrate the valuable work that library staff undertake to bring library services to new audiences and to develop new activities for existing users.

Awards will be made for marketing projects that include several promotional elements, which are co-ordinated and presented in an integrated way to increase their impact.
