Magazine Awards

We love it when a client receives a new award certificate to put on the wall, or a new statue to dust, but not because it tickles our professional vanity (although it certainly does that, too). We are passionate about the quality of the work we do, and we want our clients to benefit from our best efforts on their behalf. For us, having a client’s marketing campaign, magazine, newsletter, website or other communication effort earn an award is about more than winning. We want to know what works and what doesn’t. We want to make sure that the work we do on behalf of our clients is, in fact, excellent.
communicator award

The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards program recognizing big ideas in marketing and communications. Founded two decades ago, The Communicator Awards receives over 6,000 entries from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest awards of its kind in the world. The Communicator Awards honors work that transcends innovation and craft – work that made a lasting impact.

These awards provide winners and their clients the recognition they deserve, and give communications and creative professionals proof and validation that their work is highly regarded by their peers within the industry. The Award of Excellence, our highest honor, is given to those entrants whose ability to communicate positions them as the best in the field. Award of Excellence winners will also be showcased in the Interactive Winners Gallery. The Award of Distinction is presented for projects that exceed industry standards in quality and achievement.

The Communicator Awards is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, an invitation-only group consisting of top-tier professionals from acclaimed media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms. AIVA members include executives from organizations such as Airtype Studio, Big Spaceship, Conde Nast, Coach, Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Estee Lauder, Fry Hammond Barr, Lockheed Martin, MTV Networks, Pitney Bowes, rabble+rouser, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Time, Inc, Victoria’s Secret, Wired, and Yahoo!
