AVC Media Enterprises won the Overall Business Award at the Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce Northern Star Business Awards before 1,000 guests at Aberdeen's Exhibition and Conference Centre. The award was recognition for the company's recent achievements in a range of categories, including production innovation and customer service.
