Me­dia on Mars best on planet Freo

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS - Leah Roberts

ME­DIA on Mars took out the ma­jor gong at the Fre­man­tle Busi­ness Awards on Fri­day night.

Tak­ing out the busi­ness of the year award, Me­dia on Mars project man­ager and graphic de­signer Shan­non Palmer said the com­pany helped clients iden­tify op­por­tu­ni­ties for fund­ing and worked with them to im­pact so­cial change.

“We used the ap­pli­ca­tion process to re­flect on our pro­cesses,” she said.

“We were shocked and sur­prised when we won; we feel very proud.”

Fre­man­tle Cham­ber of Commerce pres­i­dent Ivan Dzeba said while there were ex­cit­ing projects hap­pen­ing in the city, there were still many chal­lenges ahead.

“We have some ex­cit­ing projects within the city that are un­der­way and many more which are about to com­mence,” he said.

“We must re­spect the peo­ple out there that open their doors for busi­ness. They are the ones that keep the city go­ing.”

Fre­man­tle MLA Si­mone McGurk said she was proud to rep­re­sent the Fre­man­tle com­mu­nity and ex­cited by the city’s prospects.

“We as a gov­ern­ment are aware of the op­por­tu­ni­ties and the po­ten­tial that Fre­man­tle has,” she said.

“I be­lieve that once the de­vel­op­ment in par­tic­u­lar in Kings Square is fin­ished and hav­ing an­other 1500 work­ers work­ing in the cen­tre will make an enor­mous dif­fer­ence and the ben­e­fits will flow out.”

Wil­lagee MLA Peter Tin­ley and for­mer Fre­man­tle MHR Josh Wil­son at­tended the event.
