We were incredibly honoured to receive a nomination for this year’s Mainframe Awards in the ‘Creativity for Good’ category and attend the ceremony at QUAD in Derby earlier this month. Mainframe supports businesses from across Derby and Derbyshire, and their work is supported by a whole host of local and national enterprises and programmes. To be recognised in this way was a real boost for us and we’re grateful to the organisers and our category judge for shortlisting us alongside fellow nominees Mair Perkins Animation and Jane Hardstaff’s Common Threads.
’Creativity for Good’ recognises businesses who have created projects that have ‘contributed to the betterment of lives through creative means; both locally or further afield’. We were pleased to be able to submit our portfolio of work for Green Eco Technologies (GET) for our nomination, with the effort to tackle the global challenge of food waste being the core focus of this work.
‘GET develops, supplies and manages technologically advanced, safe, efficient, and environmentally beneficial, on-site solutions for the conversion and re-purposing of putrescible organic waste into reusable resources.’ Our work involved a series of videos for their WasteMaster system which have been shared online and screened at exhibitions globally, and we have also supported GET’s social media management.
The Mainframe Awards evening was held on April 11th at QUAD in Derby, and our category was won by the terrific Mair Perkins and we send our warmest congratulations to her. To be amongst the nominees and such a vibrant, exciting group of creative individuals was a real privilege and we look forward to continuing our work for good both with GET and elsewhere through our documentary and promotional work.
