Enter the 2015 marketing awards for Welsh librarians

Swirls of read on black backgroundThe marketing awards for Welsh library staff are firmly established in the thoughts of many library staff now, being in their fifth (or is it sixth?) year. For 2015 the awards have had a revamp and there are now new catagories. For the last year (or two? Yes, I am having temporary memory failure!) they have also been open to archive staff, and for 2015 those working in museums will also be able to enter. There will be separate categories for the different sectors. (The reason for making the awards open to all sectors is that the marketing team are now responsible for the marketing development programme for libraries, archives and museums.)

The awards criteria have just been released and the relevant documents are in the staff toolkit on the WelshLibraries website. The deadline for applications is 30th January, and for 2015 there will be an awards ceremony and event day on 27th February 2015 at the National Library of Wales. The new categories this year are ‘joint marketing project’ and ‘marketing champion of the year’ so plenty of scope to show of what you’ve achieved.

The awards are a great opportunity for library staff and library services to gain recognition for your marketing projects and audience development work and there are some great prizes available. I know that there’s lots of library staff who have produced some excellent marketing campaigns in the last year, so check out the documents and send your entry in!
