DANILO AND WARWICK ROWERS TAKE TOP SPOT AT NATIONAL CALENDAR AWARDS
Held at the beautiful Stationer’s Hall in London we were one again thrilled to mingle at the National Calendar Awards with friends from Calendar Club, Grange Communications, Pixel, Carousel Calendars, Avonside Publishing among others, whilst wandering through the exhibition and admiring all the 2016 nominations.
The NCA’s are a national event (we like to think the OSCAR’s of the calendar world) held annually celebrate the best calendar designs and bring together printers, designers, photographers, artists, publishers as well as the industry’s future ‘the student’.
And this year we were delighted to have received ten nominations and won FOUR awards!
- Winning Best Retail Character Title was Marvel Comics 2016 Calendar
- All Leeds United fans will be pleased to hear that our Leeds United 2016 Calendar won the Best Celebrity / Media title (much to the dismay of our host Eamonn Holmes)
- With 2015 being a Minions Mad year, we were very pleased that our A5 Minion Diary won Best Diary Award
- We were also thrilled that our Star Wars Calendar won the Best New Title award
Which meant we came joint top with the lovely Warwick University Rowers who also won Four Awards for their calendar (which raises money for Sport Allies). So a big congratulations to them and to the other winners of night!
We were also joined by TV star Eamonn Holmes who did a fantastic job of hosting and presenting the awards. We were particularly impressed by his PowerPoint proposal on how an Eamonn Holmes Calendar could look! 🙂
So after another great night, the Danilo team are now gearing up for showing our new 2017 range at Spring Fair at NEC, Birmingham this February.
Fingers crossed we can replicate our success at next year’s awards!
