Worcester communications agency shortlisted for prestigious national creative award

An award-winning Worcester-based communications agency is celebrating after reaching the final three of a prestigious video production awards ceremony.

Conteur were announced as finalists by the leading creative communications award, The Drum Roses Award, shortlisted in the category of “TV/ Cinema Commercial Produced for 20k or Less”. They are up against BBC sport by BBC Creative and Bristol-based company, Cowshed.

The shortlisting comes as a result of the creative agency’s Sky Adsmart campaign for Foster Care Associates, one of the UK’s largest independent foster agencies.

Featuring a foster family and their children, the innovative video plays on the double meaning of the word ‘foster’ and features various before and after style shots of the children, in a bid to encourage people to consider becoming foster parents in 2022. With the intention to keep messaging simple but powerful, the video shows the transformation from a vulnerable environment, to foster care and its benefits.

Conteur provides integrated marketing and communications services including PR, SEO, graphic design and video production. Last year, the team scooped a Royal Television Society Award for their film on the Confetti Fields at Wick, in Worcestershire.

The Roses Awards celebrate the fact that the best work need not come from the biggest cities. They emphasise that many of the UK’s most talented creatives work in its regions, as opposed to its capital city. Brands are keen to look off the beaten track to find the best thinking. By celebrating work many London-centric organisations miss, the Roses help them do just that.

Gillian Davies, a Director at Conteur and head of the Video Production department, commented: “We believe in every single piece of work that we do here at Conteur. We are proud to create content on behalf of some incredible organisations that do truly great things.”

“The concept for this film took several weeks to finalise but we were thrilled with the results. As a team, we work hard to bring out the very best stories from the clients we work with and it’s fantastic to see all of our hard work recognised in this way.”

The winners will be announced on Wednesday, 25th May 2022 at 6:30 pm at the awards show.
