Marketing Excellence Awards 2016


Last year we had over 40 entries from across museums, archives and libraries and some fantastic ideas and examples of marketing excellence were awarded with prizes up to the value of £500 at the brilliant awards event held in the National Library of Wales.


Have you attracted new audiences, done a great marketing activity on a shoestring or used some grant funding to extend your engagement with a national campaign or initiative – whatever you are doing, why not enter for your chance to win not only a prize, but recognition from your colleagues across the sectors.
