Public relations company Comm&Sense won a gold and two silvers for the three entries it submitted to the 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.
They bagged the Gold Stevie Award for Innovation in Content Marketing/ Branded Editorial for the agency’s campaign for the hospital ManilaMed. Aside from that, they will also receive the Silver Stevie Award for HMO company PhilCare for Innovation in Cross-Media Marketing and another silver for the WestLake Medical Center, this time for Innovation in Viral Videos.
The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards is the only business awards program that recognizes innovation in the workplace in all 29 nations of the Asia-Pacific region and is widely considered to be the world’s premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards for 18 years.
President Jaeger Tanco said Comm&Sense plans to continue this emerging winning tradition by having the agency send in more nominations from its growing client portfolio, not just in healthcare, but also in finance and consumer brands.
“We are emboldened to showcase even more campaigns. We are proud of these because these were not just creatively executed, they also – more importantly – allowed our clients to surpass their business goals,” he said.
Managing Director Charlotte Fabian – Reyes also was also amazed with the growing number of recognition that the agency has been getting for the past three years.
“For us, the recognition that we have been getting is a testament to the excellent collaborations our team has formed with brands. It is also providential that we are getting our first international award as we approach Comm&Sense’s 15th anniversary,” said Reyes, who co-founded the agency in 2005 with Tanco.
Communications Director Toteng Tanglao highlighted the importance of intelligent PR as the backbone of their successful engagements.
“Intelligent PR relies on data as a smart springboard for content, platform, and amplification, allowing brands we partner with to attain not just engagement but more importantly market relevance. Intelligent PR is Comm&Sense’s business card,” Tanglao said.
More than 1,000 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year in categories such as Award for Excellence in Innovation in Products & Services, Award for Innovative Management, and Award for Innovation in Corporate Websites, among many others. The winners will be celebrated during a virtual (online) awards ceremony on Tuesday, 22 September.
“We are delighted that the seventh edition of the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards attracted so many impressive nominations. This year’s winning nominations are testament to the resiliency and innovation of organizations in the region, many of which continue to succeed despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we are disappointed that we cannot stage the in-person awards banquet we had planned for Hanoi, Vietnam this year, we look forward to celebrating many of this year’s winners during our virtual awards ceremony on 22 September,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.
