There are few things more satisfying than being publicly awarded in front of your PR and communication peers. We’ll skip the list of other things we like and just focus on the awards bestowed upon us last week though (Tweet at us if you’re curious now).
The 49th Annual Bell Ringer Awards, sponsored by the Publicity Club of New England, honors excellence in communications work in every field and industry, across all forms of media. Known as “the Bells,” the awards recognize professionals who leverage creative strategies, tactics and tools to achieve meaningful results for their clients, companies, organizations, and institutions.
The Bell Ringer Awards Gala was held at the Revere Hotel’s Liberty Hall this year. Professionals from more than 55 agencies, companies and non-profits from across New England gathered with colleagues at the Gala. The evening kicked off with a cocktail hour and was followed by a family-style dinner. When the lights dimmed, host Josh Brogadir, sports reporter/anchor at WCVB Channel 5, began announcing the winners.
And the Winner Is…
LPP was a finalist in two categories for our work with Philips. The competition was fierce this year with many peers submitting impressive work – especially in the healthcare campaigns.
In the Healthcare Publicity Campaign category, the team’s media coverage and results from HIMSS 2016 won a Bronze. The award recognized the team’s media relations work which helped to strengthen Philips’ position as a leader in connected health while reinforcing its leadership in health IT by driving home key messages.
The team nabbed another Bronze award in the Healthcare Product Launch category for its work securing coverage during RSNA 2016. The campaign was awarded for its achievement in breaking through noise during the show while driving home key messages on connected radiology.
Quality Client Time
Members of the Philips team joined LPP at the ceremony to celebrate the award-winning work. Strong partnerships like the one LPP/OVC has with Philips are the best way to achieve award-winning results. This year, two Bronze awards illustrate the client-partner relationship we put at the center of our work. Next year, we predict even more fantastic and award-winning work.
