Innovative Politics Receives Highest Industry Honor

Innovative Politics is proud to announce that it has been awarded six coveted Pollie Award from the AAPC, the industry’s highest honor bestowed upon political consultants at the national and international level. Innovative Politics was recognized in the categories of collateral- public affairs and issue advocacy, direct candidate mail, logo development, and television spot, for its exemplary work during the 2012 political season.

“This year’s Pollie Awards were especially exciting given the very competitive 2012 election cycle. We continue to see in our entries new, creative efforts to reach voters through both traditional voter contact tactics and innovative, groundbreaking social media strategies,” said AAPC President Dale Emmons (D-KY).

The AAPC announced this year’s winners at the 2013 Annual Pollie Awards & Conference on April 5 in Washington, D.C.

“It is an honor for Innovative Politics to have won more Pollie Awards than any other agency in the Southeast,” says Jay Connaughton, CEO of Innovative Politics. “To be recognized at this level for our work is a testament to the talent and expertise of the Innovative staff.”

The Pollie Awards (Pollies) are bipartisan honors awarded annually by the AAPC to members of the political advertising and communications industry who have demonstrated superior work on behalf of their candidates and causes. A blind jury of their peers known as the “Judges” selects AAPC award winners. Esquire magazine has dubbed the Pollies as “…the Oscars of political advertising.”

The annual Pollie Awards & Conference marks the beginning of the next political season where political professionals gathered to learn, celebrate, relax, network and refuel for the upcoming 2012 election cycle.

“The winning companies represent the top talent in political and public affairs business across the nation and we’re grateful to be in that number and we especially want to thank our clients for the faith they placed in us to get the job done,” says Gordon Reese, Director of Political Affairs at Innovative Politics.
