South West creative collaboration up for European award

The South West creative industries could be up for an award for their work promoting a South West shopping Mall.

Ad agency Chalk & Ward, on Exeter Quay, and the PR Works, based on Matford Business Park, the media buying firm, Mostly Media and The PR Works Limited, are up for the European 2009 International Council of Shopping Centres (ISCS) SOLAL Marketing Awards for their Drake Circus – We’ve Got It Covered campaign.

Stuart Devlin, of Chalk & Ward, said: “It was all done regionally. There is no need for businesses to look towards London or Bristol when there are agencies delivering such commendable campaigns here in the South West.”

The final will take place at the ISCS European Marketing Conference in Vienna on June 18.
