In praise of second place

Writing about web page http://www.warwick.ac.uk/go/podcasts

So, we went to the Chartered Institute of Public Relations annual awards dinner last night. Warwick Podcasts, having won the Gold at the regional awards, was up for a gong in the Best Use of New Media blah blah blah.

We got Highly Recommended – which is pretty much 2nd place. Now, considering the 13,000 overall entries that’s not too shabby.

So I am now in possession of a shiny certificate which we can hang up on one of the non-existent walls in the communications office.

BTW – we were beaten by a goat in deely boppers. Happens to me all the time.

    Tom – you deserved to win!

    The judges comments for the winner:

    Great use of stunning photography with untrained animals that really delivered results in terms of coverage and impact.

    Your comments:

    Captured global attention and the UK’s first University to achieve an iTunes listing for a series of topical podcasts.

    I know which one I would have picked!
