SpecialEffect scoop Oxfordshire social media award

The extreme effort of manhandling Nick Streeter into a dinner jacket and black tie wasn't all for nothing on Friday as we were stunned and delighted to receive the Mark-Making Social Media award at the West Oxfordshire Business Awards.

"It's a real honour," said Mark Saville, who handles the charity's communications. "There are many fantastic West Oxfordshire businesses who are doing great things with social media, and we're incredibly grateful to receive this award. Social media works in two ways for us; It's a relatively low cost way of communicating with, to and for the people who support us and the people we help. And it's also the natural language of the video gaming community." 

Winners were announced at the awards event hosted at Heythrop Park Resort near Chipping Norton on Friday 14 March. The annual awards are now in their fourth year and provide an opportunity for the very best of West Oxfordshire businesses to receive recognition for outstanding achievements over the past year.

Jo Sensecall, spokesperson for the WOBA organising team, said “This was the most fiercely fought WOBAs yet with each award category posing a fantastic problem for our judges due to the high standard of businesses we have in West Oxfordshire. On behalf of the organising team, I would like to extend our congratulations to all finalists and to our very worthy WOBA winners who should feel extremely proud of their business achievements.”
