Atlanta, GA – Congratulations to Wilmington, Del.-based PR and Social Media firm GillespieHall, that was recognized this week with three national awards in the 11th Annual Service Industry Advertising Awards Events. More than 500 advertising agencies and over 1,000 institutions participated in the 11th Annual Awards, which recognizes the best of service industry advertisements, print communications, websites, TV Radio and electronic communications, and social media campaigns. A national panel of judges reviewed entries for execution, creativity, quality, consumer appeal, and overall break through advertising content.
GillespieHall received top awards for:
- Social media outreach and motivational campaign titled “You-Front and Center,” for Delaware’s largest prevention and treatment group, Brandywine Counselling and Community Services (BCCS);
- Comprehensive social media branding and enrollment campaign for a new Charter School in Washington D.C.; and
- Website content for Pennsylvania Alliance to Control Tobacco Youth Campaign.
“These awards highlight GH’s expertise in the area of digital marketing messaging,” says Neal Hall M.D., president of GillespieHall’s Digital Marketing. “We understand human behavior and then change it, and that separates us from the crowd.” GillespieHall is one of the few PR firms in the county that has had an established social media department since 2009. “I knew this was the direction we needed to go, “says Hall. “We have integrated all the elements of Public Relations into the science of social media, and the results we are getting for our clients are magnificent.”
SIAAWARD is the only advertising awards to recognize communication achievements in the service industry. GillespieHall founder and PR specialist Bridget Paverd said this was the third year the firm had walked away with the gold, and she is “beyond proud” of the GH team’s achievements.
