AKCG Garners Five Awards at Pepperpot Ceremonies
Mount Laurel, NJ - December 8, 2010 - Anne Klein Communications Group, LLC, received five awards at the annual Pepperpot Awards event sponsored by the Philadelphia chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA Philadelphia). The Pepperpot Awards honor excellence in public relations programs. This is the second straight year the firm has won five awards at the ceremony.
“We are so pleased our work for our clients has been recognized by our peers. We share the honors with them,” said Anne Sceia Klein, AKCG founder and president.
Two of the awards highlight one of the firm’s key areas of expertise – crisis communications. AKCG won a first-place Pepperpot for an H1N1 crisis communications plan prepared with St. Mary Medical Center of Langhorne, Pa. The firm won a second-place award for a pair of articles written by Anne Klein for Today’s Campus magazine on crisis communications and risk management for colleges and universities.
The firm also won a pair of awards in video categories. AKCG took home first-place honors for a video that celebrated the opening of a new hospice unit for the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Philadelphia. The other winning video project was a second-place finish for a 30-second television public-service announcement, sponsored by New Jersey American Water, urging viewers to support the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.
The media kit prepared for a “demolition ceremony” to announce plans to construct The Shopping Center at the ARSENAL in Northeast Philadelphia earned a second place award.
Also at the event, the firm presented the Anne Sceia Klein Professional Promise award to Kimberly Ciesla, a senior at Rowan University. “Kimberly’s leadership, academic achievements and vision for her future greatly impressed us,” Anne Klein said. The Professional Promise award, given annually, was created in 2007 in honor of the firm’s 25th anniversary.
