As you may or may not know - we were shortlisted as a finalist for the category of "Tech Team of the Year" 2019 in The Business Exchange Swindon & Wiltshire 2019 Techie awards. This in itself was a huge honour - just to be considered alongside some great local businesses meant a lot to us. So when GEL Studios was announced as the winner last night (after a live vote!) - we were really blown away.
So - how did it all unfold?!
When we were made aware that we were shortlisted as a finalist, we were also asked to provide a short video, showcasing why we thought we should win the award. Instructions were specific that the video didn't need to be creative in anyway, it was all about the message in it. This video was then going to be played on the awards night, along with the other finalist, so that the audience could cast their vote, for the winner to be announced later in the evening.
So what was this magical video that helped us win, we hear you ask?! Well, have a look for yourself...
The awards were held at Harham Park in Corsham and it was great to see so many like-minded, passionate businesses at one event. Again, something we were extremely grateful to have the chance at being part of. Our finalist video was shown at the end of the first half, so people could vote through the interval, ready for the winner's announcement in the second half. Here we are in the interval... eagerly waiting!
With a rather impressive 80% of the votes, might we add! We honestly can't thank people enough for their votes last night. Working with each other every day, we know what a passionate and creative team we are. Each and every one of us genuinely loves what we do, and we pride ourselves on trying to be different from other creative agencies out there. We receive a lot of great feedback from clients about the fun and positive experience they have with team GEL. And we work hard to maintain that. So for other people to not only recognise that, but award us for it.... we're not quite sure there are enough words to express how much that means to us. But to put things quite simply - thank you. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and love. #WeAreGEL
