When La La Land took home seven six Oscars earlier this year, it was impressive, to say the least. Just being nominated for such a substantial number of Oscars is a reflection of the overall quality of the film. However, it’s also an appreciation of the diverse range of components which make up the movie. From the actors and writers to the choreographers and musicians. Being in the running for such a wide range of awards is something to celebrate. Therefore, it’s fitting to reflect on a very successful few weeks at Nelson Bostock Unlimited.

Going back to the end of March, the team began its hot-streak of nominations with the announcement that we’d made B2B marketing’s shortlist of the top three UK B2B PR agencies. That same week, we attended the PRmoment awards. Following our nomination in the Best B2B Campaign of the Year category for our ‘A Portrait of Performance’ campaign with Criteo. The campaign revealed some interesting mobile shopping insights. However, it also positioned Criteo as a champion of consumer shopping insight and resulted in some fantastic national coverage.

Shortly afterwards we were nominated at the CIPR Excellence Awards for our work with Canon on its ‘Wider Image campaign.’ The campaign sought to capture the perfect shot which would not only inspire but would also showcase the amazing technology inside Canon’s EOS 5D Mark IV. The campaign helped to highlight thought-provoking photography from seven key markets across Europe and proved a great success for Canon.

This hasn’t been the only nomination for the campaign, with the SABRE Awards also shortlisting it for Best Pan-European Programme, and Criteo’s ‘A Portrait of Performance’ is also on the illustrious shortlist.

We closed the month with a much-welcomed nomination for Best Use of Photography at the Online Media Awards. This followed some more excellent work with Canon. This time as a part of its “In Pursuit of the Shot” campaign. Reuters photojournalists, equipped with Canon’s EOS 5D Mark IV, set out to capture a truly inspirational and engaging shot.

Now, all we need to do is receive an award nomination for our blog…
