Bearded Fellows, the Salford based creative studio, won the Best Micro Enterprise at The Big Chip Awards on 23 June, marking their third win in six months.
This achievement follows the wins at The Prolific North Awards in May and The Talk of Manchester Awards last December.
Bearded Fellows, which was founded in 2012 by four friends and Manchester Metropolitan graduates, create animation and video content for a variety of clients across the corporate and creative sector. The company offers consultancy support to business directors to implement strategic growth through digital content and a clear articulation of key messages.
The win at the Big Chip awards is prestigious due to the ceremony being the biggest and longest running digital industry awards outside London. The award ceremony celebrates digital excellence and has unrivalled reputation for judging consistency and integrity.
The awards, which were hosted at the Midland Hotel on 23 June, are run by and for the digital industry. The ceremony champions all things digital in the north of England, and includes special categories for start-ups, micro-businesses, students and apprentices.
Bearded Fellows were nominated in the Best Freelancer/Micro Enterprise category alongside specialist digital marketing companies such as 180ºSouth, Credita and Mighty Giant, all of whom offered strong competition as experts in their respective fields.
Matthew Stanners, the Creative Director of the company said “We are very proud of what we have achieved as a company over the last 3 years, and humbled by the recognition our work has received over the last 6 months.
“As a small, self started company, we are grateful to every single individual that has supported us throughout this journey. We are especially thankful to our brilliant team of creatives who bring such skill and enthusiasm to everything we do”.
