Derby Digital - the brainchild of Bondholder iBox Creative - has launched the first of its Business of the Month Awards.

The Awards are held each month where four local companies are put forward as nominations. Each of the nominees then use social media to try and gather the most votes. The winner is announced at the end of the month and receives a certificate, lots of social media coverage, blog posts and more.

A huge 363 votes were cast for the first award which took place last month and the winner, Spondon-based used car dealership Caralot, beat competition from other nominees including University of Derby graduate The Advert Man, The Kitchen Derby and Young Ideas Fashion.

Harriet Taylor, Digital Marketing Manager at iBox Creative, commented: "The awards are fantastic. We are creating a real buzz within the business community in Derby. There are so many businesses of all sizes who deserve recognition. The awards is a way for us to give back to Derby businesses and help them engage with the public who follow them. Derby is a city that needs to be celebrated and the core strength of the city is its businesses."

Derby Digital is always looking for new businesses to enter. For more information visit Derby Digital's website.
