Honoring Excellence, Creativity and Hard Work: MarCom Awards

Marcom 2016

Associations and non-profits often struggle with marketing or communications. Developing a strong brand, relevant voice and innovative creative approaches can be challenging when working with limited resources. Fortunately, the AAE continues to make great strides forward even with a small staff and tight budgets. The AAE is proud to receive six MarCom Awards recognizing outstanding achievement by creative professionals involved in the concept, design and production of marketing and communication materials. Six thousand entries from around the world are submitted to this annual competition, and our recognition is one way we know we’re producing effective communications that are noticed by our members and the public. Success also is a tribute to the AAE’s dedicated staff and members.

“This is a great way to benchmark ourselves against other creative organizations in the corporate and association industries,” said AAE Executive Director Kenneth J. Widelka. “Congratulations and thank you to all of our staff and members who made this possible. These awards serve as visible recognition of taking an excellent idea and applying award-winning written and graphic concepts. These awards are encouraging indications of our success this year. We are very pleased at the recognition and plan more exciting, innovative work for next year.”

MarCom is one of the oldest, largest and most prestigious creative competitions in the world. MarCom is sponsored and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), a 22-year-old international organization consisting of several thousand creative professionals. As part of its mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and community organizations. Over the past few years, AMCP has given over $1,000 in charitable contributions.
