Last week saw the official launch of the BBC Radio 3 Proms website which we’ve refreshed for the 2014 season (the team here are all overly excited about the Pet Shop Boys Prom!) and we have some more Proms-related news to share.
We’ve just been told that the 2013 Proms season won the Multiplatform Award at the Listener and Viewer Awards, which were held at as part of the Listener and Viewer Spring Conference the Geological Society in London last week.
The award was given in recognition of the outstanding use made of the three platforms BBC Radio 3, television and the website in broadcasting the 2013 Prom Season.

We’ve been part of the Proms Multiplatform team since 2011 and are so thrilled to see it win this award. Other people and brands to be given accolades at the ceremony included Sir David Attenborough and University Challenge so the Proms were in very good company.
Also, picking up an award at the ceremony was BBC Radio 4’s ‘The Life Scientific’ who won Best Radio Programme – we actually also designed The Life Scientific 'Science Explorer' for the programme too. It was great to see another BBC brand we've worked with picking up silverware.
All in all a great night for everyone including mN.
