An eChristmas card shared widely by Nautilus members has won a plaudit at the 2019 Trade Union Communication Awards in London.
In a strong field of entries from across the UK trade union movement, Nautilus International’s short festive animation was highly commended in the category Best Communication for Reps and Activists.
The judges said they liked the powerful ecard with its simple message of the importance of seafarers' role in delivering Christmas. 'This felt like appropriate support of the union's members at Christmas time,' they said.
Nautilus head of strategy Debbie Cavaldoro commissioned the December 2018 ecard from PR agency Acceleris – now known as Definition. 'The Nautilus eChristmas card is popular with members and makes good use of social media to spread the word about seafaring,' she said.
