The two Magnum Opus Awards bring Ascend Integrated Media’s total awards won from nearly a dozen different national and international creative competitions to 40 in just the last two years.
Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Custom publishing agency Ascend Integrated Media LLC is proud to announce that it has been awarded with two awards in the highly competitive Magnum Opus Awards program. This awards program draws more than 500 entries from across the nation and includes entries from major corporations like Google, United and American Airlines, Mercedes Benz, Acura and The Walt Disney Co.
Ascend entered work created for two of its partner clients. The company received special recognition in the elite “Print Publication for an External Audience” category for its work with members of the Professional Convention Management Association’s (PCMA) content team. The winning entry was the PCMA 2012 Convening Leaders Show Daily newspaper series.
Equally exciting for the company was a bronze won for “Most Improved Magazine Design” for client Environmental Career Center and its magazine, The Green Careers Journal.
According to Ascend CEO Cam Bishop, “We were thrilled to have won for even one of our clients’ entries in this elite competition, much less both. Following on the heels of four awards announced earlier this year in the Hermes Awards competition, this Magnum Opus recognition is icing on the cake. Even better, this tremendous recognition from Magnum Opus continues to be a great way to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary year this year.”
Rhonda Wickham, Ascend’s vice president of content also noted that “the two Magnum Opus Awards bring Ascend Integrated Media’s total awards won from nearly a dozen different national and international creative competitions to 40 in just the last two years. Equally important, Ascend has won for client work in a vast array of industries. The work represents the team’s creative efforts in writing, graphic design, digital media, mobile media and multimedia.”
