DANILO TAKES 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 2017 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 FIVE awards!

We were also joined by TV star Nick Ferrari who did a fantastic job of hosting and presenting the awards and we thoroughly enjoyed the LBC Radio Star’s hilarious anecdotes throughout the night.

So after another great night, the Danilo team are now gearing up for showing our new 2018 range at Spring Fair at NEC, Birmingham this February.

Fingers crossed we can replicate our success at next year’s awards!
