Diva has been shortlisted for two Public Sector Communications Awards – including the coveted Agency of the Year prize.

Our ‘Life On 2 Wheels’ campaign with Transport for Greater Manchester is in the running for Best Use of Video against work by the likes of HM Revenue & Customs and Arts Council England.

The video featured real local people and turned the message ‘I’m not a cyclist’ on its head to challenge stereotypes around cycling.

I'm Not A Cyclist

Last week, Diva and Cycling UK were named a joint runner up in The Guardian’s Sustainable Business Awards for our work on The Big Bike Revival, which restored more than 24,000 bikes through 1,600 events during two weeks in 2015.

We were also named Best Small Integrated Agency at the Prolific North Awards just over a month ago.

The Public Sector Communications Awards will be presented at a ceremony at London’s Emirates Stadium on Thursday 14 July.

Amanda Pearce, Director at Diva Creative, said: “To be shortlisted in two categories, with one being the Best Agency award, is a fantastic achievement.

“Our recent campaigns are proving very successful and Life On 2 Wheels was no different.

“I am confident that we will continue to earn further recognition in 2016, which looks set to become Diva’s best year yet.”
