Thanks to UpShift Creative Group, our website designers, we won a MarCom Platinum Award!

MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers. The competition has grown to perhaps 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 are entrants. MarCom Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. The international organization consists of several thousand creative professionals. AMCP oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges and sets standards for excellence.

As part of its mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations. Over the past few years, AMCP’s Advisory Board has allocated over $150,000 in grants and contributions to support the efforts of its members. That money was used for marketing materials for homeless shelters, orphanages, day camps, community theaters and art centers; and for programs for the elderly and disabled; childcare; and educational endeavors for the underprivileged. Judges are 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. This year the competition received about 6,500 entries from throughout the United States, Canada and more than a dozen other countries. MarCom’s Platinum Award is presented to those entries judged to be among the most outstanding entries in the competition. Platinum Winners are recognized for their excellence in terms of quality, creativity and resourcefulness. About 16 percent won this award.
