The diocese has scored 3 first places in the Communications Competition run each year by the Central Communications Board.
This site came first in the Diocesan website competition, The Dock won the Church of Ireland affiliated organisation website category and Willowfield Church came first in the Social Media section.
Here’s what the judges said:
The Down and Dromore diocesan website has ‘a good clear layout and design, is easy to navigate and has a good balance of image and text. It scores particularly well on its outreach potential with the clarity of information making it a very effective communication tool’.
The Dock website was judged to be ‘clear, attractive and easy to navigate. It communicates a message of life and what it is about more than simply imparting information.’
Willowfield’s communications activity via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Vimeo is ‘a very good example of social media being managed well, with varied and regular updates and engagement’.
