Alexandria, Va. (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) has been awarded three 2013 Davey Awards by the International Academy of Visual Arts. The MOAA Spouse blog, Making it in the MilLife, was recognized with a silver award in the blog category, and the MOAA website received silver awards in both the Activism and Associations categories.
The Davey Awards is an international creative award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small firms worldwide. The 2013 Davey Awards received nearly 4,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms and public relations firms.
In explaining its award philosophy, The Davey Awards say, “David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock — the sort of thing small firms do every day.” The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the “Creative Davids,” where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not from a “Giant’s” bankroll. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets. The Davey levels the playing field so entrants compete with only their peers and can win the recognition they deserve.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our staff experts for these accomplishments in the social media and website categories,” MOAA President Vice Adm. Norb Ryan said. “It just shows that we are continually making progress in this area and we will continue to inform our military families on programs, policies and fun family information that can improve their quality of life.”
