Shazaaam!

Winner: Shazaaam! Public Relations
Location: Detroit , MI
Business Type: Public Relations + Marketing
Category: Pro Bono

What is always noticeable in the MarCom Awards is the considerable pro bono work done by advertising agencies, public relations and marketing firms.

Recently, Shazaaam! Public Relations in Detroit, Michigan volunteered to handle publicity surrounding a very charitable act to a needy family with an out-of-work father.  The family’s 4-year-old daughter has brain cancer and requires treatment five days a week.  To add to the family’s trauma, the facility is an hour away from their Flint, Michigan home.  Angels of Hope, a charity that helps young cancer victims, arranged housing near the clinic.  The publicity generated by Shazaaam! brought the family’s story to local newspapers, websites, radio and television stations.  Besides shining a light on Angels of Hope and the bank that supplied the house, Shazaaam’s efforts also helped the father.  After six months out of work, the welder was given a job by someone who heard the story.

In a Michigan economy, that’s saying a lot.

Photography in Advertising

Winner: Mel Lindstrom
Client: Wing Stop
Location: San Francisco, CA
Business Type: Photography
Category: Photography in Advertising
One of the hardest tasks of selling a potential customer is differentiating your product from the competition’s.  I imagine few of us have given much thought to what makes a good buffalo wing or what makes one better than the other (unless it’s Superbowl Sunday). But obviously Bay Area photographer Mel Lindstrom has. In an eye catching Wing-Stop ad, Mel captures three mouth watering flavors with three very expressive faces.  The lighting isn’t complicated and neither is the set–no need to be. The models are so ‘spot on’ and the poses so picture perfect, the personalities jump off the page delivering a message that needs few words or tricks.
