Our marketing and creative services team is proud to announce our award-winning entries from the work we did in 2019. 173 media companies submitted 2,918 entries into the yearly New York Press Association (New York Advertising and Marketing Excellence) Awards Competition. Participating companies competed for awards in 64 categories as well as the John J. Evans Award for Advertising Excellence.
As a team, we took home 1st place in the prestigious John J. Evans Award for Advertising Excellence – a statewide honor. We’re thankful for all the projects we’re able to work on and for all the amazing clients we have.
Below is a recap of all the awards we won from the competition:
John J. Evans Award – Advertising Excellence
1st Place – Advance Media New York’s Marketing & Creative Services Team
Advance Media New York earned 80 points in the creative/advertising portion of the contest. First place awards were won for Best Ad Campaign and Best Large Space Ad, and second place awards for Best Real Estate/Home Section, Best Ad Campaign, and Best Large Space Ad. Third place honors were also received for Innovative Ad Project. The judges said, “very nice job relaying the message…each creative submission appealed to our senses… great way to tie in video/web…love the focus and detail…bravo!”
Sharon Fulmer Award – Community Leadership
1st Place – Karen Sherwood, Tom Brown and JoAnne Coughlin Walsh
The judges said “Just wow. Great example of community leadership. Raising $47,000 is no small feat and this entry shows just how it can be done. Leadership is the common thread throughout the entire entry, with the accompanying letter explaining how staffers raised the money. And attached brochures and promotional materials go above and beyond the other entries. The Post Standard even had a mascot for the effort. Great job.”
The judges said “The Post-Standard, Syracuse Patrice David Gorgeous homes paired with beautiful decorating ads really make this standout. Nice use of graphic elements throughout. The builders, contractors and decorators must really appreciate this publication, as well as anyone interested in home searching or just looking to gather great ideas.”
The entries were judged by members of the Washington Publishers Association and the winners were determined based on the following point system:
Each First Place Award…………………………….20 Points
Each Second Place Award…………………………10 Points
Each Third Place Award…………………………..5 Points
