SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. − It’s award season, with two major competitions once-again honoring Barnett Cox & Associates.
Summit International’s 2012 Creative Awards competition recognized the public relations and marketing firm with top honors for two compelling videos. BCA earned awards for the “Battle of the Bay” video featuring Morro Bay, and a community outreach piece created for Achievement House, a nonprofit serving the developmentally disabled.
The lively Morro Bay video mimicked a Food Network “Chopped” promotion to advertise the city’s Battle of the Bay challenge , a highlight of Sunset Magazine’s 2012 Savor the Central Coast celebration of food and wine.
For its portrayal of Achievement House, BCA combined interviews with dedicated staff, happy customers and the program’s clients enjoying meaningful work at the nonprofit facility and out in the community. The video highlights how Achievement House trains people with disabilities to enter the workforce and become productive community members who provide high quality services for local businesses.
Summit Creative Awards considered entries from 22 countries in the prestigious annual contest open to firms with up to $30 million in annual billing.
Both of these videos, plus a BCA demo reel, also picked up bronze Telly Awards.
The Achievement House three-minute video was honored in the charitable nonprofit category for non-broadcast productions and the Morro Bay video was awarded for travel and tourism promotion for online programs, segments or promotional pieces. BCA’s demo reel, featuring the company’s creative style and innovative marketing efforts, was honored in the production company/ad agency category for non-broadcast productions.

All three videos, along with two other BCA projects, were also honored recently with 2012 Addy Awards.
BCA is delighted that the hard work and creativity of its team members has earned the praise they deserve.
BCA provides public relations, advertising and marketing services for businesses on the Central Coast and beyond. For more information, visit www.barnettcox.com.
