We won 5 Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants. These are considered the “Oscars” of the political advertising industry. Over 400 firms submitted over 2,700 entries and we were one of the relatively few honored.
- The first was for the Best Use of Targeting for Television, awarded jointly between us and Left Hook, for “Ya Basta,” produced for Julián Castro for President. Professor and Consultant Dr. Robert Marbut told CBS news that Julián Castro’s “Ya Basta” advertisement was “the best three to four thousand dollar buy any candidate has made in the last 20 years.”
- We also won two awards for Portland City Councilmember Dan Ryan’s campaign – Best Use of Television For Small Budget Local Campaign for “Brother Tim” and Best Use of Direct Mail for a Small Budget Campaign for “COVID.” Ryan upset a long-term politician after having been behind 54-36 in our own polling.
- Our advertising for the Montana Federation of Public Employees won an award for the Best Mail for an Independent Expenditure Campaign for Governor, where we overcame 3:1 in outside spending to win the Democratic nomination.
- Finally, we won an award for Best Mail for a Small-Budget Independent Expenditure Campaign for our work for the New Jersey Education Association’s 527 Committee, Garden State Forward. We replaced three incumbent school board members with three first-time candidates.
We’re excited for these victories! We’d love to partner with you on your next campaign and win more elections and national honors.
