Past winner

Last year, Space City Productions was named the Best Creative Business at the H&F Brill Bizz Awards.

"Entering the council’s business awards was a fantastic decision for Space City,” said Amii van Dunn, CEO of Space City Productions.

“It’s great to be recognised externally - we try very hard to produce good work and cultivate an enjoyable working environment but having that additional recognition makes it even more worthwhile.

“I would strongly recommend any local businesses to enter the awards, and that’s not only for a fun evening at the event itself.”

The UK’s most productive advertising production company-per-head has been delivering TV, online and radio commercials since 1992, from its offices in Blythe Road, Hammersmith.

It has produced adverts for companies including Nestlé, Asda, Moonpig, GoCompare, Wowcher and MoneySupermarket.
