Sheboygan, WI – DuFour Advertising has been awarded a Platinum MarCom Award in the 2009 competition. The creative international competition recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals.
The award recognizes work completed by DuFour Advertising for ACUITY’s 2009/2010 Speaking Tour Invitation featuring President Ben Salzmann and tour speakers made up to look like the band KISS. The tongue of the character on the cover (Mr. Salzmann) pulls out to display the dates of the tour.
“What makes these awards so significant is that they are truly an international competition.” Says Ben Salzmann, ACUITY President, and CEO. “ACUITY is honored to again be recognized on a global stage for marketing and communications creativity.”
The MarCom’s prestigious Platinum Award is presented to those entries judged to be among the most outstanding entries in the competition. As part of its mission, the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations. Over the past three years, the AMCP’s Advisory Board has allocated over $60,000 in grants to support the efforts of its members. That money was used for marketing materials for homeless shelters, orphanages, day camps, community theatres and arts centers and educational endeavors for the underprivileged, to name a few. This is the second piece created by DuFour for ACUITY to win a Platinum MarCom Award.
“We are always delighted when our work is honored for creative excellence,” states Tim DuFour, President of DuFour Advertising. “But most importantly, the awards are for our clients, and a way to thank them for the trust and creative freedom they grant us.”
