Triple award nomination for Formative Content

Formative Content has been nominated for three separate awards in the past month for its digital content creation for the Varkey Foundation and the Global Education and Skills Forum.

The Buckinghamshire-based agency is shortlisted as a finalist for three separate awards, reflecting its high-quality work for clients across the globe:

  • Association of Event Organiser’s Excellence Awards for ‘Best Use of Social Media’
  • PRCA Dare Awards in the ‘Not for Profit’ category, and
  • PRCA Dare Awards for ‘Event of the Year’.

Formative Content created an on-site digital newsroom to drive digital coverage of the Global Skills and Education Forum and the Global Teacher Prize, held in Dubai in March 2017. The company used its journalists, social media producers and video team to create a stream of social media content that helped build awareness for the 3-day event for a global audience.

The Varkey Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established to improve the standards of education for underprivileged children throughout the world.

Gay Flashman, Formative Content’s CEO and founder comments:

“We are thrilled to have our work shortlisted for these nominations. We’re immensely proud of the quality and standard of content that our on-site and newsroom teams deliver for all of our clients, so to have our work with The Varkey Foundation recognised in this way makes us very proud.”

Rebecca Warbrick, Senior Marketing Manager, Varkey Foundation, adds:  

“”Formative Content took a really innovative approach to social media for the 2017 Global Education & Skills Forum and Global Teacher Prize, achieving much better outcomes compared to previous years with a much-reduced spend on paid promotions. The team were a joy to work with and we felt completely confident every step of the way about their abilities to deliver the outcomes we needed.”
