The Hermes Creative Awards recognizes outstanding work in the industry and had over 6,000 entries from throughout the United States, Canada and dozens of other countries in this year’s competition which had 200 categories. The international organization consists of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, media production and free-lance professionals. Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.

“We were really thrilled to win at this level; these awards are very competitive, but we’ve been testing our creative muscles and I thought we should throw our hat in the ring as this was a great chance to see where we stood in the market against creative firms. It was a total happy surprise to win a platinum and gold,” said Susan Able, publisher of Edible DC.
