Social media and digital agency Orbital Media was among the winners at the 2014 Over The Counter Marketing Awards for non-prescription health products.

Orbital, which is based in Stowmarket, won the Best Campaign in Digital and Social Media category for a “virtual treasure hunt” designed to support television advertising for Sudocrem antiseptic healing cream.

Other finalists in the category included campaigns for Benadryl from Johnson & Johnson, Lemsip from Reckitt Benckiser and Bio-Oil from Godrej UK.

Orbital’s social media campaign, run alongside Sudocrem’s “For all of life’s little dramas” television adverts, involved an application embedded within the Sudocrem Facebook page which allowed users to select from 40,000 squares, spread across four themed maps, to reveal hidden prizes.

One of the award judges said: “A simple yet highly-effective digital campaign for Sudocrem produced very clear outcomes and return on investment, coupled with excellent audience engagement and strong key message delivery.

“What I loved about Sudocrem’s campaign was the creativity of the methods used to reach the key audience and then tap into this audience to further expand the brand’s reach.”

The north Essex-based Flying Trade Group has expanded its leisure operation with the addition of the Bricklayers public house in Colchester.

Britain’s offshore wind capacity could increase five-fold by the 2030s, cutting carbon emissions and saving on consumer bills, analysis suggests – with the Norfolk and Suffolk coast in a strong position to benefit.
