Our director Andy Hudson who attended the awards at the House of Commons said
“We only had four websites that were eligible for entry and all four made the finals with two winning entries and a close third. We didn’t know that Kerry McCarthy’s website had even made it to the final selection until the day of the awards, so you can imagine how surprised I was to find out that Kerry had won the Engagement Award.”
“We are absolutely delighted it was more than we could have hoped for, especially given that Derek’s website was a winner last year too.”
“We are also very pleased for the respective MP’s and their staff, without who we probably wouldn’t be here tonight. Websites are always a team effort after all.”
