Five Companies Honored at SMPS Philadelphia’s Second Annual Marketing Communication Awards
February 9, 2016
On Wednesday, January 27, SMPS Philadelphia hosted the second annual Marketing Communication Awards (MCA) Ceremony at Haworth’s office in Center City Philadelphia. The evening was full of networking, laughter, and delicious food (can you say candied bacon?). During the event the MCA winners were announced and their marketing pieces were exhibited for all to view and enjoy.
The SMPS Philadelphia MCA program recognizes A/E/C marketing professionals throughout the Philadelphia metropolitan region for their contributions to their firm and its success. This awards program is an opportunity for our colleagues to showcase the marketing pieces they have worked on over the past year.
This year’s applicant pool was particularly competitive, representing a diverse group of Philadelphia area firms. The winning projects were reviewed by a 14 member panel of esteemed local SMPS Philadelphia Chapter Members, Fellows, and Past SMPS National Presidents, who scored each submission on creativity, best practices, messaging, deliverables, and whether or not the firm met their overall marketing objectives.
We would like to recognize and congratulate the following winners:
First Place – Promotional Campaign
