Stonewall Marketing was recently honored by the Davey Awards program for its work with TAMARACK: The Best of West Virginia.
The agency earned a silver place finish for a promotional piece featuring Tamarack's 15th anniversary celebration in 2011.
The four-page, full-color magazine advertorial piece appeared in the summer issue of WV LIVING magazine (June 2011). The piece details the vibrancy of Tamarack and its artists over the past 15 years and their on-going contribution to the state's travel and tourism industry. Additional copies were printed and distributed throughout the year to visitors.
"Our 15th anniversary is a significant milestone in 2011 and a commemoration for the entire Mountain State," said Cindy Whitlock, Tamarack marketing director. "Tamarack is the nation's first artisan center for fine art, craft and cuisine. This year has been a special celebration of our artists' masterful work. Wining this award is icing on the cake."
"It is a true honor to work with a client such as Tamarack," said Kari Thompson, Stonewall Group public relations/account manager. "We were delighted to have a part in Tamarack's anniversary celebration. Tamarack's artists are inspiring in of themselves."
