Pardon the Horn Tooting
You'll have to excuse the blatant, self-congratulatory post, but we're rather pleased with ourselves. A project we created for American Fiber Systems has been selected as a 2008 AMY Awards Finalist. That, my friends, is a big deal.
For those of you who may not know, the AMY Awards is the annual awards program presented by the Atlanta chapter of the American Marketing Association, an international organization consisting of 45,000 professional marketers in more than 100 countries. The Atlanta chapter is the fourth largest with almost 1,000 members who meet regularly for luncheons, mixers, meetings and the annual AMY Awards.
Now, it may sound clichÃ©, but simply being named a finalist truly is an honor. There were more than 130 entries submitted by more than 40 marketing and public relations agencies on behalf of 72 organizations. The finalists were selected by measuring delivery of results, the impact on business objectives and the successful execution of marketing best practices.
In short, that means we're doing our job and doing it well. The nod places us with the best Georgia has to offer the marketing world. Of course, we'd love to win, but we're quite proud of our team for consistently creating the kind of work that got us to the finals. It's like the Oscars. We're donning our black ties, gowns and heading off to the Fabulous Fox Theatre to sit with the best Atlanta has to offer. With any luck, we'll be back in a few weeks with even better news!
