Two employees of the Edinburgh based creative communications, digital, film and event production agency 20/20 Productions have picked up two awards at the prestigious Institute of Internal Communication Scotland (IoIC) ICon Awards.
Recognising excellence in all aspects of internal communications, the IoIC Icon Awards have awarded Editor Chuck Cumming with the title of Best Visual Creator, and the Rising Talent Award: Best Young Communicator award was won by Producer Marii Stoltsten.
The Rising Talent Award celebrates the special people under 30 who are shining in the industry, raising standards and who just fully understand what great internal communication looks and feels like.
Marii Stoltsen’s outstanding comprehensive and considered approach wowed the judges and they said “her ability to put employees at the core ensures campaigns resonate and deliver stunning results.”
In her role as Producer at the creative agency, since 2013, Marii is responsible for the conceptualisation and delivery of a variety of events, video and design projects for some of the agency’s biggest clients including Heineken, Standard Life, Tesco Bank and Reed Business Information. Commenting on her win Marii said: “Throughout my career I have always hoped I was doing right by my clients in helping them choose the best messages and channels for their communications. Winning this award is really affirming and a huge confidence boost.”
Picking up the prize for Best Visual Creator, Chuck was commended by the judging panel for his obvious real love for film and his dedication to making it work for clients, grabbing attention and getting across messages with power. As Editor at the award-winning company Chuck has worked on filming and video work with clients such as Standard Life Investments, Heineken, Tesco Bank and Akzo Nobel, and speaking about the award win he said: “I’ve always tried to bring my love of film and storytelling into every project that I work on, and it’s very satisfying to receive this recognition from the IoIC. It’s a huge motivation to keep developing and pushing my creativity.”
