Orlando, Fla. – May 23, 2012 – Uproar PR, a full-service public relations and social media firm, today announced that the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals has named the agency a recipient of two 2012 Hermes Creative Awards. Uproar took home the gold award for its social media campaign for GolfNow and for its successful pro-bono work with Twice As Warm.
“We are very proud of the measurable and exceptional results we achieved through innovative strategy and follow-through for both of these campaigns,” said Partner and Co-Founder Catriona Harris. “It’s an honor to receive such a prestigious acknowledgement by our industry through this international competition.”
To elevate awareness for Twice As Warm’s sustainable clothing donation movement, Uproar PR developed a targeted media campaign around the brand, garnering attention of mainstream media and TV outlets including The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and ABC.
