EMG has been presented with the ‘Gold Award’ at the 2015 Hermes Creativity Awards. The prize was awarded for a series of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) related cartoons that EMG had produced to promote awareness for CSR and Sustainable Development, which have been made available open source.
The Hermes Creative Award is recognized and respected internationally, having grown to be one of the largest creative awards in the world. Current and previous award winners range from Fortune 500 companies to individual communicators and everything in-between.
Daan Elffers, CEO of EMG, said: “We are very proud to have received such prominent recognition for our cartoons. We must give credit to Brendan Boughen, cartoonist, in doing an excellent job in powerfully communicating some of the sense and nonsense of industry approaches to ‘CSR’.”
“The cartoons have been popular with students and professionals who have wanted to incorporate their messages in presentations and communication tools, and so at EMG, we have made all images available to copy for further use and promotion of the cause at no cost”.
The Hermes Creative Awards is judged and administered by the AMCP, the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, based in Dallas, Texas. Consisting of several thousand communication, marketing, advertising, media production and public relations professionals, the AMCP sets standards for excellence, provides judges, and oversees a number of recognition and awards programs.
The Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals was founded in 1995 with the purpose of honoring exceptional accomplishment and service to the industry. In particular, the Association supports and fosters professionals who contribute their talent to charity and public service.
Over the years, EMG has been awarded a great number of international awards for the creativity and quality of its work in the field of corporate social responsibility and sustainable development. EMG itself was on the judging panel of the recent CSR Excellence Awards in Saudi Arabia, and will again be judging at the Excellence Awards during the CSR Summit 2015 in Dubai.
