2019 REED Award Winners Announced
ACCESS Marketing Services wins two REED Awards
AUSTIN, TX., Feb. 25, 2019 – ACCESS Marketing Services won two REED Awards at the 2019 REED Awards Conference, a year noted by its record amount of entries and particularly competitive landscape. Named for Campaigns & Elections founder Stanley Foster Reed, the Reed Awards recognize the best of the political industry.
ACCESS Marketing Services was recognized for both creative design and its targeting capabilities, winning in the following categories:
Direct Mail – Campaigns > Best Mail Piece for State Senate Candidate: Carl Marcellino for New York State Senate District 5
Digital – Advertising & Targeting > Best Use of Online Targeting for Statewide Campaign – Non-Federal: AZ Yes on 126
The win for Best Mail Piece highlights one of ACCESS’s preeminent capabilities in creative design and execution of constituent engagement campaigns. With a candidate facing a tough political environment, the mail piece remained resonant by capturing the anxiety many Long Islanders face over taxes and voter anger toward Albany.
For the AZ Yes on 126 campaign, ACCESS worked in lockstep with its premier partner, REAL Strategies, to build precision models targeting people based on the mobile applications they use, the social media groups they engage with, and their modeled political affiliation.
When asked about the awards, ACCESS Marketing Services Chief Operating Officer, Rebecca Jami stated, “I’m so excited to have the opportunity to win such meaningful awards in two distinct and important categories. As a company, we look to continue to build upon our success from the 2018 election season.”
Out of fourteen total submissions from ACCESS Marketing Services, nine campaigns in total were considered finalists and two were considered winners. The seven finalists include:
Digital – Web Video > Best Web Video for Gubernatorial Candidate
Digital – Web Video > Best Web Video for Ballot Initiative
Digital – Websites & Mobile > Best Landing Page
Direct Mail – Campaigns > Best Mail Piece for Special Election Campaign
Direct Mail – Campaigns > Best Use of Photography in Direct Mail
