CIM has today released details of the eighth category in their 2017 Northern Awards, which will be held in Manchester on Thursday 09 November.

The CIM Northern Awards, now in its fourth year and sponsored by the Marketing Trust, celebrates the insight, creativity and success of the Northern marketing industry, the outstanding campaigns and the talent from across the North of England, including the Isle of Man. There are 17 award categories, 13 of which are open to entries, and the evening event will once again be hosted by TV’s Andy Crane.

Diane Earles, Network Manager for CIM, said “Our eighth category this year is Studying Member of the Year.” She continued, “This category is not open for entry but will be determined by the student achieving the highest grade from those completing the CIM Diploma in the past year. The shortlist will be selected by the highest achieving students in the North West (including the Isle of Man), North East and Yorkshire, and the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony.”  This award was presented to Natasha Baker from the North West last year.

The Studying Member of the Year category is kindly sponsored by The Educational Trust, who offer marketing students financial support with their fees.
