Invitation for Akron Civic Theatre Wins Top Honor with Platinum
AKRON, Ohio (April 18, 2016) – WhiteSpace Creative garnered three Hermes Creative Awards this month in an international awards competition which recognizes excellence in the concepting, writing and design of traditional and emerging media while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals.
“We couldn’t be happier with these awards,” said President and CEO Keeven White. It’s an incredible professional achievement, especially winning Platinum and Gold Awards in this prestigious competition. It speaks highly of the work we do at WhiteSpace and I’m proud that the judges felt our work exceeded their high standard of excellence and serves as a benchmark for the industry.”
The Hermes Creative Awards are administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), an international organization consisting of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, media production and freelance professionals.
WhiteSpace earned the following honors:
- Platinum Award for “Spirits of the Civic” Gala Invitation for Akron Civic Theatre
- Gold Award for “Yetti Service Alert Photo Illustration” for Holland Regional
- Honorable Mention Award for “Wild Things Happen,” :30 TV Spot for Akron Zoo
More than 6,000 entries were submitted for the Hermes Creative Awards 2016 competition. Winners were selected from 195 categories, with typically only 15 percent of entries recognized with the Platinum (the organization’s top honor for the most outstanding entries), around 20 percent win Gold (for entries that exceeded high industry standards) and 10 percent take home an Honorable Mention.
“Seeing our creative work – design, copywriting, TV production and print production – honored at an international level means so much to our staff,” said Eric Jacobs, creative director. Delivering quality work that sets our clients apart in their industries is what drives us.”
