There’s an old saying in journalism that there’s an award for everything.
That’s right: it’s not just reporting and writing. There are also awards for editing, for community service and even for newspaper delivering.
Advertising has its own awards, and I’m delighted to report that TheBurg has received five awards in the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Foundation’s annual “Advertising Contest.”
This is actually the first time we’ve entered this peer-reviewed contest, so we were delighted to be honored to win the following awards in our category:
First Place: Best Single Ad (Rubicon ad) (pictured below)
First Place: Real Estate Ad (Olde Uptown Lofts) (pictured below)
Second Place: Special Event/Vendor Support Idea (Harrisburg Mural Festival)
Honorable Mention: Best Single Ad (Sculpt Pilates ad)
Honorable Mention: Self-Promotion Advertising (TheBurg Daily)
I would like to give a special thanks to our team behind the ads: Megan Caruso, TheBurg’s creative director, and our sales team, Lauren Maurer and Kelsey Tatge.
Below, we show our two first-place awards. Great job, Burg staff!
