Ouch weblog: individual blog entry

7 Nov 07, 12:27 PM - Ouch: award-winners!

Posted by Crippled Monkey

Oh, do I have exciting news for you?! Erm, yes. Yes, I do!

Last night - Tuesday 6 November - the Ouch team got dressed up in their poshest outfits and headed out to the headquarters of BAFTA (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) in London's Piccadilly, to attend the Royal Television Society's Innovation Awards. Ouch producer Damon Rose, researcher Emma Tracey and Podcast host Liz Carr were there because the Ouch Podcast was nominated in the Community category.

And do you want to know the really exciting part? WE WON!

Yes, Ouch are now the proud owners of a rather lovely, shiny award, which will no doubt take pride of place in our office. The judges said that our Podcast: "... hit the nail on the head in terms of meeting the brief ... succeeded in innovatively targeting a specific community ... a downloadable radio show that simply wouldn't be found on any other radio station".

Crippled Monkey, it has to be said, is fending off a rather bad champagne hangover this morning, so I'll leave you with this photo of Damon and Liz meeting the award ceremony's host, Peter Snow (yes, him of Election Night swingometer fame), with Liz holding our award. We've got a load more photos from the night on Ouch's Flickr page, so be sure to go and check them out!

Monkey is so proud. So very proud. Sniff.

Come on, admit it - in fine BBC tradition, it was a member of the production team who phoned in and voted, wasn't it? ;-)

Just kiddin'. Well deserved, chaps.

Congrats, it's good to see (or hear, or somehow sense) your good work being rewarded.

I heard some similar good news recently - one of my friends has been nominated for Disabled Entrepreneur of the Year - he's one of the 6 finalists. I'll be crossing my fingers for him to be as successful as Ouch!

Thanks to all for your comments! We really appreciate the support. rather than just chatting about what should be out there, we go ahead and create it ... or we do our best. We'd love to see much more proactive work like this ... come on .... maybe our award will inspire you to do your own podcast or YouTube project? Huh? Cheers ...Damon
