Bareface Media, the award-winning advertising and marketing agency, whose Birmingham office is located at the Custard Factory, a leading hub for creative and digital businesses, is the latest company to sign up as a sponsor of the Midlands Media Awards.
It joins the ranks of headline sponsor HSBC, The High Field gastropub in Edgbaston and Jewellery Quarter-based Russell Printers.
Group Managing Director Simon Morris (pictured), who founded Bareface Media in 2008, said: “We can’t wait to celebrate and reward the best of the best in the Midlands.”
The agency, which employs 25 people, also has bases in Singapore and Sydney and includes Facebook, Porsche and ATS Euromaster amongst its list of clients. It offers content production, brand creative and strategy, social strategy, integrated campaigns and web development.
The Awards are this year being organised by Milk and Mayo, a Birmingham-based events company, on behalf of Birmingham Press Club. They are held to recognise the achievements of journalists, broadcasters, photographers and bloggers throughout the East and West Midlands.
Canalside, the waters-edge venue located at The Cube, is to host the awards, which take place on 2 November. Deadline for entries is 12 August.
Club chairman Llewela Bailey said: “The Awards are now in their 16th year and we are delighted that they continue to be as popular as ever – both with entrants and sponsors.”
