McLean, Virginia (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
MorganFranklin Corporation’s Pivotal Plays® in Business & Government campaign has been awarded the prestigious 2012 Gold Communicator Award of Excellence by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA). MorganFranklin, a business and technology consulting firm that delivers financial management, performance improvement, and national security solutions to industry and government clients, was presented with the Award of Excellence in the “Integrated Campaign: Business-to-Business” category for its Pivotal Plays campaign http://www.pivotalplays.com. With thousands of entries received from across the U.S. and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring the creative excellence of marketing and communications professionals.
MorganFranklin launched Pivotal Plays® in Business & Government in 2007 as an awards and recognition campaign that showcases business, government, and community organizations and personnel that are making headlines by turning challenges into winning results.
“Being honored at the 18th Annual Communicator Awards is a remarkable accomplishment and a testament to the award-winning work of our Marketing team and the support of management—as well as the applause-worthy work of leaders in business, government, and the community," said Erik Ayers, vice president of marketing at MorganFranklin.
In the fall of 2010, MorganFranklin launched http://www.pivotalplays.com. Like play-of-the-game highlights in sports, the website features game-changing decisions and innovations in industry, government, and community-based organizations. Other key components of the campaign include the Pivotal Plays blog launched in December 2011, Pivotal Plays Twitter feed @PivotalPlays, and Pivotal Plays Series, which features panel-driven live events that bring together special guests from sports, business, and government to share their personal views on the factors that define Pivotal Plays. Video recordings of Pivotal Plays Series events can be viewed at http://www.pivotalplays.com.
The campaign also includes television, Web, print, and radio advertising, as well as sponsorship of the MorganFranklin “Pivotal Play of the Game” in D.C.-area professional sports broadcasts on Comcast SportsNet for the NHL Washington Capitals, NBA Washington Wizards, and MLB Nationals. In addition, sports radio Washington 106.7 and Baltimore 105.7 The Fan give further recognition to MorganFranklin’s Pivotal Plays award recipients.
“The pool of entries we received for this year’s Communicator Awards serves as a true testament to the innovative ideas and capabilities of communications and marketing professionals around the world. Each year, our entrants continue to amaze by reinventing the ways we communicate and market in an ever-changing industry,” said Linda Day, executive director of the IAVA, an invitation-only organization that judges and oversees the awards. “On behalf of the entire academy, we congratulate this year’s Communicator Award entrants and winners for their passion and dedication.
