DALLAS, TX– MarCom Awards today announced winners for the 2010 international awards competition that recognizes outstanding creative achievement by marketing and communication professionals. There were close on 5,000 entries from throughout the United States, Canada and several other countries in the 2010 competition.
Hockessin based PR and Social Marketing firm GillespieHall (GH) received three MarCom awards – two of them Platinum; the first Platinum award was for a campaign targeting young adults urging them to be cognoscente of the advantages of not drinking alcohol , and conversely, the consequences of drinking when pregnant or planning to be. The campaign was designed for Wilmington, Delaware based Brandywine Counseling and Community Services, Inc. The second Platinum award was for the gala creatives designed for the American Lung Association in New Jersey.
“This is just fabulous,” said Bridget Gillespie Paverd, CEO of GillespieHall. “We work with extraordinary clients who are totally immersed in their mission and goals – their passion transfers onto us very easily. These awards are something we share on every level with BCCS and the American Lung Association.” GillespieHall president, Neal Hall, a Harvard trained physician, recognizes that GH’s clients trust the GH team to change behaviors. “We don’t do busy work here,” Dr Hall commented. “Our campaigns are all about creating awareness and garnering real results.” The MarCom Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serve as a benchmark for the industry.
MarCom entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers. The competition has grown to the largest of its kind in the world. A look at the winners shows a range in size from individual communicators to media conglomerates and Fortune 500 companies. The competition is so well respected in the industry that national public relations organizations, local ad clubs, and local business communicator chapters compete.
