That’s right folks, we’re delighted to announce that our company, House Creative, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Digital, Creative & Media category at the E3 Business Awards 2018, held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton on Thursday 12th July.

Only 5 agencies have been shortlisted from amongst hundreds of nominees to become one of the finalists for the Digital, Creative & Media category.

“We had almost three hundred nominations this year,” said Mubarak Chati, managing director of 1 Events Media, which hosts the E3 Awards. “The Awards are now in their sixth year and, every year since we’ve started, the number and calibre of entrants has grown.

“This year, we’ve seen such a strong turn-out that we’ve taken the unusual step of expanding the number of finalists in most of the key categories. We have seen a particularly impressive response in the Digital, Creative & Media category, the Employer of the Year, Family Business of the Year, the High Growth category and the New Business Start-up. All of those have seen a genuinely staggering number of entrants.

“It’s also been really good to see that we have finalists from every county of the North West, from Cumbria to Cheshire. The E3 Business Awards are all about inclusivity, so to see such a healthy mix of mainstream and rural businesses, women and young entrepreneurs, social enterprises and so on – that’s fantastic, and just what we want to see.

“Given that we’ve had our best ever influx of nominations, anyone who has made it to the shortlist stage has done so against the very fiercest competition.”
