Newspress Awards 2017 Highlights

The 2017 Newspress Awards Ceremony built on the huge success of the inaugural awards in 2016. Once again, proceedings were in the capable hands of MC Alan (voice of the Lottery) Dedicoat. His approachable style, complementing a relaxed format, is in line with the Newspress Awards ethos: to have fun, as well as recognise excellence in this industry. Dull, the awards are not

This year the entertainment came thick and fast, but the highlight this year was the announcement that Ford's former press fleet manager Bob Wright would be the recipient of the Special Newspress Award. As you can see in the video, this was a very popular choice.

The video features Alan's highlights as well as a few notable winners including a very enthusiastic response from Automotive Video winner James Batchelor. To say he was 'pleased' is something of an understatement.

The culmination of the evening was the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award that went to Vauxhall's PR Director Denis Chick.
