CLIENT OF THE YEAR

Client of the year

Smart Energy is a worthy winner of client of the year. Like many advertisers they recognise the value that magazine brands offer in terms of the strong connections to consumers through their passion points. Their campaign worked really hard to capitalise on these, engaging consumers whilst also delivering a benefit back to the brand.

These awards are run in partnership with Campaign and the winning entries will be showcased in the July issue of the magazine.
