Turns out the other two finalists for the Silver Anvil in our category “Events/Observances, Seven Days or Fewer — Non Profits” were two agencies from our ‘hood: Weber Shandwick and Padilla Speer Beardsley. Congratulations to our friends at Weber Shandwick, Minneapolis, who scored local bragging rights and took home the top prize in our category last Thursday in New York. Our work, along with PSB’s, was honored with an Award of Excellence.
No shame in going home with the consolation prize. The local Weber Shandwick office has never lacked great leadership and a deep roster of talent. Same for PSB. They are venerable firms, who have long set the standard for excellence in town. Twin Cities firms made a stong showing at the Silver Anvils, with no fewer than six local agencies, including OLSON, Exponent and CLS, represented. We were honored to be nominated alongside all of them on the biggest night in PR, and congratulate our Homies on their great work.
