Addis Communications Honored with Several Industry Awards

Addis Communications, a full-service strategic communications agency specializing in health and science communications, has won several awards for agency branding and work on behalf of two national science clients.

Addis Communications won three awards from MarCom, one of the largest, most-respected creative marketing and communications competitions in the world, which receives an estimated 6,000 entries each year. The health and science agency won a platinum award for its white paper and series of accompanying infographics, “Promote or Perish: Sharing Your Research to Advance Your Science and Your Career.” The special project was done on behalf of the American Institute of Physics Publishing, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Institute of Physics (AIP). The agency also won two gold awards: one for the AIP annual report, Excellence Matters, and a second award for Addis Communications branding.

In addition, Addis Communications was honored by Graphic Design USA’s 55th Annual American Graphic Design Awards™ for agency branding/identity design. Graphic Design USA receives more than 10,000 entries each year in a variety of categories, and only 10 percent are selected as winners.

“I launched Addis Communications to do PR and communications work I’m passionate about — working with national organizations to serve as their trusted strategic communications partner,” said Karen Addis, APR, president and CEO of Addis Communications. “To learn that I have already won four prestigious awards for my clients as well as an award for the branding of my own agency in just a few months of being in business is beyond thrilling. But I also recognize it truly is a team effort. I’m so fortunate to work with incredible professionals who do stellar work and understand the importance of delivering a quality project on time and on budget for our clients.”

Said AIP Publishing Director of Marketing and Communications Sara Girard, “We selected Addis Communications to develop a white paper and a set of infographics about how early-career scientists can use social collaboration networks to advance their research and careers. From the beginning, Karen and her team collaborated with us to shape the scope of the work. And, they were a pleasure to work with throughout the project, translating our vision into a quality, finished product.”

Said AIP Senior Director of Strategic Marketing and Communication Peter Inchauteguiz, CAE, “Through discovery meetings with staff from across our organization, Addis Communications provided professional, strategic guidance around positioning and presenting the AIP Annual Report as a representation of a year filled with outcomes told through a series of connected stories. And Addis Communications provided complete project management to deliver the final product on time and on budget!”
