Award nomination for local copywriter
A local copywriter’s sense of humour has been recognised as he reaches the final three for national VOX Award.
A LOCAL copywriter has been nominated for a national award for his sense of humour writing voiceovers in commercials.
Tim Cooke, from Bideford, is in the final three nominees for the prestigious ‘best use of humour’ category in The Vox Awards 2012.
Mr Cooke wrote the nominated commercial, ‘furniture that speaks for itself’, for UKRD’s Star Radio in Cambridgeshire on behalf of The Music Mill in Newton Abbot.
He said: “Wherever possible I try to write commercials that are innovative and a touch quirky. They tend to be the ones that get noticed, and consequently clients seem to get a better response.
