Belfast copywriter Paul Malone has been shortlisted in two categories at the 2021 Belfast Business Awards.


The Belfast Business Awards are organised and hosted by Belfast Chamber with Principal Sponsor, Bank of Ireland UK.

The Belfast Business Awards recognises, promotes and rewards the excellence of Belfast-based companies.

The ceremony, now in its sixth year, has become synonymous with recognising, promoting and rewarding the excellence of Belfast-based companies.

110 of Belfast’s top businesses have made the shortlist spanning 22 categories, from Young Business Personality to Social Enterprise of the Year to Best Digital Business to the Bank of Ireland UK Lifetime Achievement award.

The awards seek to reward all business areas in all sectors, in Belfast and will take place on Friday 22 October 2021, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Shaw’s Bridge, with tickets on sale now.

Belfast Copywriter Tall Paul ‘delighted to be a finalist’.

A delighted Paul Malone comments, “It’s hard to believe that I quit a secure, full-time job in July 2020 during the first lockdown to concentrate on Tall Paul Marketing full-time.

“Since then, I’ve enjoyed writing for such a diverse range of interesting people and companies in every industry imaginable, including tech, property, charity, law, communications and public bodies.”

As a result of that work for clients, earlier this year, the freelance copywriter in Belfast was also a finalist in the Marketing Project of the Year category at the prestigious 2021 Digital DNA Awards.

Paul continues, “I’d just like to say a huge thank-you to every single one of my clients for placing their trust in me with website content, blog content, copywriting and marketing material over the past year.

“Tall Paul Marketing wouldn’t have been so successful if it weren’t for all of you trusting me.”

Great pride at shortlisting news.

“I feel great pride in being shortlisted for these awards, and I’m excited now for the big night at the awards.

“With Covid causing so much disruption over the last year or two, it’ll be great to get dressed up and attend an in-person event.

“I’ll be in great company in both categories; the others who have been shortlisted are a great example of local businesses adapting to a challenging period.

“Personally speaking, being able to work at something I love every day is a privilege, and I’ve met so many incredible people with such unique stories,” he adds.
