The Milates Center for Well-being website received two Gold Awards in the 2015 MarCom Awards competition in two categories: a) Digital Media: Website / Web Content and b) Digital Media: Website / Small Business.
The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals and is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The Platinum Award is presented to the most outstanding entries in the competition. The Gold Award is presented to those entries that are judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm. Out of more than 6,500 entries this year (from the US, Canada, and 12 other countries), 16% won the Platinum Award and 23% the Gold Award.
The MarCom competition has grown to perhaps the largest of its kind in the world with about 6,000 entries per year. A look at the winners shows a range in size from individuals to media conglomerates and Fortune 50 companies. The competition is so well thought of in the industry that national public relations organizations, local ad clubs, and local business communicator chapters are entrants.
