WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Scott Circle Communications (SCC), a DC-based communications and event-planning firm, was honored by The Public Relations Society of America - National Capital Chapter at the 44th Thoth Awards Gala at the National Press Club on September 13th.
The annual Thoth Awards recognize outstanding public relations campaigns in the Washington, DC area. SCC was recognized for its work with the 2011 DC Shorts Film Festival. Below is a description of the awards SCC received:
Thoth Award – Electronic Press Kit
SCC and the DC Shorts Film Festival took home a Thoth Award, the highest honor in the electronic press kit category. The press kit was created for the 2011 DC Shorts Film Festival. The innovative kit was designed to make covering the festival as easy as possible. Instead of a traditional paper folder, SCC provided reporters with a flash drive that included each film in its entirety, descriptions of each film, contact information for each filmmaker and other pertinent information that members of the media could easily access whenever they were at their computer.
Certificate of Excellence – Blogger Outreach Campaign
SCC was awarded a certificate of excellence in the blogger outreach category. Through extensive, targeted pitching, SCC was able to garner 56 original blog posts for the 2011 DC Shorts Film Festival.
Both the press kit and blogger outreach campaign helped the festival sell 38 percent more tickets than the previous year.
A distinguished panel of judges selected the finalists based on a detailed review of the submissions from a wide array of public relations agencies of all sizes, private sector companies, government organizations, nonprofits and professional associations.
