Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
Each year, AWAI selects at least one copywriter as the winner, based on campaign performance throughout the year. All AWAI members are eligible for the award, which is based on the successful completion and mailing of a sales letter for an AWAI product.
From the initial headline and lead submission, entries pass through multiple layers of approval and peer review. Finished letters are put into test mailing sequences, and results are monitored throughout the year.
Winner are announced during the Awards Luncheon at AWAI’s Fast-Track to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair, held each October in Delray Beach, FL. Each winner receives a check for $10,000 on the spot and an ongoing contract with AWAI.
In announcing this year’s winner, AWAI Co-Managing Partner Rebecca Matter said, “I can't think of a more deserving person for this year's $10K challenge. Along with writing a blockbuster promotion for us this year, she always meets her deadlines, and continuously works to improve her craft. People should keep their eye on Christina … I have a feeling she'll be one of AWAI's biggest success stories in the years to come."
In receiving the award, Gillick said, “It feels awesome to be this year's winner! As a freelancer it can be hard to prove you know what you're doing. But winning this award gives me the proof I need to take my career to the next level!”
She added, “I'm so grateful for what AWAI does and for all the experts who contribute and share their advice and wisdom. Copywriting has become so much more than a path to quitting my full time job. Writing has always been my passion and AWAI gave me the tools I needed to turn it into a business. I do what I love every day and it keeps getting better.”
Gillick lives with her husband, Nick, near Dallas, Texas. She is the founder of ComfyEarrings.com, and has been a freelance copywriter since 2003. Her company, Gillick Copy LLC, specializes in clear and engaging web copy for online and offline firms.
Past winners of the AWAI award include Guillermo Rubio, Pam Foster, Mindy McHorse, Joshua Boswell, Pat McCord, Krista Jones, and Roy Furr.
