Nautilus victorious in TUC communications awards

Nautilus team - TUC Communications Awards 2017

Nautilus International once again triumphed in the TUC’s 40th annual ‘Oscars’ for union communicators.

The Telegraph picked up the award for best print journal and the Nautilus website won the award for best digital membership communication. While the ‘What have seafarers ever done for us?’ animation was highly commended in the best designed communication section.

Judges praised the ‘astounding coverage and top quality writing’ in the Telegraph, highlighting ‘topical stories of broad public interest along with articles that give members great advice on a range of issues’.

They also praised the ‘striking and impressive’ website, pointing to the varied visual content and the way in which it reflects the Union’s transboundary approach with different language versions and a low bandwidth option.

The Union’s campaign animation was described as ‘highly creative and engaging’ and a ‘really strong piece of work backed up by impressive social media figures’.

Nautilus director of communications Andrew Linington commented: ‘We are really proud to have our work honoured in these awards. It’s a huge tribute to the dedication and commitment of our team and the support that we receive from members, staff and officials.’
