Davies of Santa Barbara Receives Five Awards for Political PR Work

Davies of Santa Barbara is proud to announce that it has been awarded five coveted Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants, the industry’s highest honor bestowed upon political consultants at the national and international level.

Davies was recognized in the following categories for its exemplary work during the 2012 political season: Overall Campaign, Public Affairs, Best in Show — Napa Pipe; Overall Campaign, Public Affairs, Direct Mail — AES; Overall Campaign, Public Affairs, Direct Mail — Highland Fairview; Internet, Public Affairs, Best Facebook — Rosemont Copper; and Internet, Public Affairs, Website State/Local — Enefit American Oil.

“This year’s Pollie Awards were especially exciting given the very competitive 2012 election cycle,” AAPC President Dale Emmons said. “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.”

“We are honored by the AAPC’s acknowledgment of our work,” said Davies CEO and BLAZE president John Davies. “The awards are a testament to the professionalism and expertise of the team.”

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

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.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
