WINNERS! Ok, I'll back up and let you in on the details...
So a few months ago, our little PR team decided that we do some pretty cool stuff, and that it was time to see how we stack up in Portland's PR world. So we applied for four PRSA Spotlight awards - and good news - we stack up pretty well!
Last night we donned our best attire (had to pull out those fancy dress-up clothes that we never have to wear to work - thank goodness!), prepped ourselves for possible acceptance speeches (ok not quite, but we were excited!), and headed to the Governor's Hotel for the PRSA Spotlight awards ceremony.
It was great to mingle with Portland's PR pros and even greater to find out that we had won! (Keep in mind we have never entered awards, and we definitely flirted with the deadline!) We won three of the four awards we applied for - one for The Game Factory's Build-A-Bear Wii Celebrity Launch Event, and two awards for Taco Del Mar's Free Tacos on Tax Day! We wanted to share the good news with you - and here are our new, most prized possessions. (They have taken the place of our candy jar - that's how much we like them...)
On another very exciting note, our design department won a Rosey award last night for their amazing work on BridgePort Brewery's Raven Mad bottle labels - they were 3D and even came with 3-D glasses, very cool! Congrats R/West team!!
