For the second year in a row, we're delighted to announce we are finalists in the much-contested Global Agency of the Year category at the internationally-recognised Content Marketing Awards, one of only two agencies in Europe to make the finals. Finalists and winners in various categories include behemoths like Yahoo, Mayo Clinic, Salesforce, Microsoft, SEGA, Nestle, and Forbes.
This year's panel of all-star judges reviewed more than 1,100 entries to choose the "best of the best" in content marketing excellence, recognising all aspects of content marketing, from strategy to distribution, and editorial to design. Only six agencies worldwide made it into the coveted 'Agency of the Year' category.
Content Marketing World 2017 will be held from 5th-8th September 2017, in Cleveland, Ohio. The event is expected to draw 4,000 attendees from more than 70 countries.
As part of our submission to the Content Marketing Awards, we created a 'Soliloquy to Content' to broadcast why content marketing means so much to us. We're a nation of storytellers and it's in our blood.
"It's that love of the form that's enabled 256, Ireland's only full-service content marketing agency, to also be the only Irish agency to have scooped five global content marketing awards," comments Karen Hesse, Managing Director at 256, of our place on the global shortlist.
Come September, it may be six!
