So this happened…!

Vox award winner

Vox Award Winner..

Vox Award WinnerI was more than happy enough just to be nominated but to find myself a winner of  this Vox Award was truly awesome. Over the past few years a lot of hard work has gone into what I do and it’s fantastic to be recognised, particularly in the field of Imaging and Promo voiceover which is the genre I have been involved in the longest.

My thanks must go to Chris & Mark at Devaweb who are a tremendous production company based in Manchester Media City as this is their award too. They produced the winning work and do their magic on a daily basis to produce outstanding finished audio. The also produced the award entry and you can take a listen here…

 

Thanks too to Steve Martin of Earshot Creative, who was the kind sponsor of this award. In fact if you missed going to Vox and want to catch up you check out Steve’s live blog of the event here

Really really pleased, and thanks also to the judges, and organisers Posy & Stevie and team @VoxEvents for putting on a great night, and my fellow winners & finalists too. You can read about all of the winners here

 

 

Wow, a VOX Awards nomination!

VOX Awards 2016

Vox Awards Finalist

So the last time I received an email saying I was on a shortlist it was for a round of redundancies… So imagine my surprise this time to find I had made the shortlist for a VOX Award!

These awards are the only dedicated voiceover industry awards in the UK. There are not many categories, with 4 finalists in each, so to be one of them is really ace.

I’m nominated in the category “Best Imaging & Promo Voiceover Performance” which I’m particularly chuffed at as this is the area of voiceovers I started out in many moons ago, and still do a huge amount of today.

Particular thanks must go to Chris Stevens & Mark Gabler at Devaweb, who on a weekly basis look after the production for the stations I voice for, and turn a raw voice session into audio masterpieces.

You can check out the audio in question here:


And wish me luck for Saturday the 25th June!

Are British brands actually British..?

British flag brand

 

Buy British was the phrase once upon a time, but now many brands we think of as being from this fair isle may not be quite as British as you think. See if you can figure out the ones that still are, and the ones which are now Ex Pats..!
