My Awards

yes, i’ve won
Some writers say awards don’t matter. The truth is, awards provide the only forum in which creative professionals are judged by their peers. Marketing awards go one step further and nail what counts: results. The difficulty with awards is that to win them, you must work in a place, usually an agency, that values them and is willing to pay the steep entry fees. And agencies value awards for the same reasons creatives do: awards help them get clients. I’ll do award-worthy work for you. We can split the entry fee.

ABC Awards
I wrote an annual report that tied with Ford Motor Co. for a national Silver award sponsored by the American Business Communicators. Awards are given in various categories; this award was for business narrative writing.

CLIO Awards
Time magazine called the Clios the “most recognizable international advertising awards.” I have won a Clio and was shortlisted for another one. The most important criterion is the idea behind the work. There is one winner per category, with outstanding entries on the shortlist.

Mead Top 60 Awards
MeadWestvaco is one of the largest paper and packaging companies in the world. In the glory days of print advertising, a Mead Top 60 Award of Excellence was envied in the profession. I won one for AIGA South Florida.

HSMAI Adrian Awards
The Adrian Awards are given by the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) for marketing and revenue optimization. I have won a Platinum and several Gold awards on behalf of Sandals and Beaches Resorts.

Stevie Awards
In 2015, I developed creative concepts for an agency client under a non-disclosure agreement. They were finalists in four categories for a Stevie Award. Presented by the American Business Awards, the Stevie is the most prestigious business advertising award.

Healthcare Advertising Awards
The Healthcare Advertising Awards have been sponsored by the Healthcare Marketing Report for 32 years. It is the oldest and largest awards competition specifically for the healthcare industry. I won a Gold award for an ad campaign for Mercy Hospital.

I have won national and regional Gold and Silver awards from the American Advertising Federation (AAF) for print campaigns, brochures, and direct mail programs. AAF Awards (formerly the ADDYs) have about 40,000 entries competing for creative excellence.

ARDA Awards
I won ARDA (American Resort Development Association) awards at Bluegreen. ARDA sponsors the premier awards completion for the vacation ownership and resort development industries around the world, with participants such as Marriott, Hilton, and Disney Resorts.
