The 2011 MarCom Awards winners were released this week, and we are excited to announce that AKC Marketing took home three awards for the Special Event, Marketing Promotion Campaign and Brochure/Sales Promotion categories.
The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition, recognizing outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. In this year’s MarCom Awards competition there were over 6,000 entries from throughout the U.S., Canada and other countries.
For the Special Event category we were honored with the Gold award, which is presented to “entries judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm,” for our work with the Latham Freedom of Independence Ride.
Our highest recognition was received within the Marketing Promotion Campaign category, where we received a Platinum award, which recognizes “excellence in terms of quality, creativity and resourcefulness” and is “presented to those entries judged to be among the most outstanding entries in the competition,” for our work with the Lely Juno Feed Pusher overall marketing campaign.
The MarCom Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals. Submissions were judged by industry professionals who “look for companies and individuals whose talents exceed a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.”
We are more than honored to have received this type of national recognition within our industry, and humbled to be listed among the extremely talented companies and agencies also recognized as recipients of this year’s awards competition.
