Winner of a Gold Award in 2023 ‘Hermes Creative Awards’ International Competition

Congratulations to our Creative Services team here at Advance Media New York for winning a gold ‘Hermes Creative Awards’ in this years competition (see winner below).

With over 6,500 entries from across the U.S. and from around the world, the Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing, and design of traditional and emerging media. Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the industry while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals.

Our creative team won a gold award for a video they produced for Olum’s Furniture & Appliances. They came to our team looking for a video that showcased their 42,000 square foot space but done in a cinematic way. Our creative team not only filmed grounded footage, but also captured drone footage in their showroom which brought a new perspective through elevated shots.

The awards competition is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The international organization consists of several thousand production, marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, and freelance professionals. AMCP administers recognition programs, provides judges, and rewards outstanding achievement and service to the profession. Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.

Being a Gold Winner is a tremendous achievement symbolized by the intricately detailed Hermes Platinum and Gold awards. The name Hermes (Greek messenger) and the idea for the award were chosen to represent our roles as the messengers and creators of marketing and communication materials and programs.  You can view all the winning entries from the competition here.

Client: Olum’s Furniture and Appliances

The Team: Nicole Barry and Kayleigh Tarbet

Olum’s Furniture and Appliances has celebrated over 100 years of service, and they are proud to be among the area’s premier furniture stores in Central New York. They have all the furnishings one would need to turn a house into a home, from bedroom accessories to home entertainment features to dining room furniture and more. They came to our team looking for a video commercial that would showcase their 42,000 square foot space but done in a more cinematic way. Our creative team not only captured grounded footage, but we also captured drone footage within the showroom as well! The footage came out smooth and certainly gave their showroom a new perspective some some elevated shots. The commercial has a warm feel and is intended for people to see how much they have to offer. The client was very happy with the end result.

We’d love to put our talent to work for you! Reach out to us at or use the form on our contact page.
