The Northlight team have won top-level awards for both broadcast and corporate work. Pride of place on the mantlepiece goes to the BAFTA, won for the documentary "In Search of the Tartan Turban." This was aimed at a youth audience and took a lighthearted look ta a serious subject - the nature of cultural identity. The programme featured London-based Scottish Sikh, Hardeep Singh Kholi, as he returned to his roots in Glasgow.
Other awards include a Royal Television Society award for graphics, awarded for 3D animation created for a health education video on teenage drinking made for the Health Education Board for Scotland - now Health Scotland. (On the left of the BAFTA.)

Northlight has also won more than one IVCA Award (International Visual Communications Awards) - the premier recognition of excellence in commercial and corporate video production. The most recent was a Silver Award for Best Safety Video for the outrageous production "Norman Gorman - An Accident Waiting to Happen", made for GTC Group in Aberdeen. This DVD starred Tom Urie, star of the National Theatre of Scotland's stage show Tutti Frutti and Marj Hogarth, one of Tom's colleagues on The Karen Dunbar Show. In it Tom, as the hapless Norman, pokes his eye out, saws his leg off, and other comedic gems of the safety world. All in a good cause...
And let's not forget the Scottish Corporate Communications Award given for "The Power in the Stone" - a video made for Mobil.
There's more, but you've probably got the picture. If you're a corporate client, you might now like to ask the obvious question by checking on budgets...
