The 15th annual Service Industry Advertising Awards (SIAA) announced this week that the Hockessin, Delaware-based PR firm GillespieHall has won three Gold Awards for its outstanding work in these categories:
- Visual Brand Identity Design for the exciting biotech start-up Avkin
- Informational Social Media Campaign on fetal alcohol syndrome for Brandywine Counseling and Community Services

Brand loyalty is a commodity worth growing and protecting—we do that well for our clients and it’s nice to have recognition from the SIAA.”
