Hermes Creative Awards is one of the oldest and largest creative competitions in the world and honors outstanding work in the field of marketing and communication. It recognizes exceptional creativity and innovation across the creative industry’s best publications, branding collateral, websites, videos, and advertising, marketing, and communication programs.

The Hermes Creative Awards entries are judged by members of the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). Established in 1995, ACMP is one of the largest and oldest third-party evaluators of creative work in the world. ACMP administers and judges several international competitions for marketing and communication professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of marketing and communication programs.

“In 7 years, The City Center had graduated 83 formerly homeless families into successful lives – yet our own communities did not know about The City Center. When we needed to purchase our facility to save almost 50% in rent, we called Consortium Media. We knew that they were the very best at building community awareness through their 5 Pillar program. We raised over $1,000,000 in our first 12 months! We wouldn’t have been able to bring this work to light without Denise and her team,” said Jim Duran, Executive Director of The City Center.

We really appreciated the ability of Consortium Media to highlight local youth experiences as they live their best lives cannabis-free,” said Eva Avila, Health Educator for the Tobacco Prevention & Cannabis Education Program of Santa Barbara County Public Health. “Collaborations like this are the ones that allow our program to make our greater impact in our community by shining a light on those affected the most. The Tobacco Prevention and Cannabis Education Program in Santa Barbara County will continue to work with Consortium Media in campaigns to elevate and showcase real stories in our community.”
