“Every campaign we create is strategically crafted to achieve our clients’ business goals,” said Sarah Owens, Rivers Agency’s executive creative director. “This year was our first time entering the Communicators competition, and to win six distinction awards is great validation that our creativity and innovation not only get results, but that the industry recognizes our work as best in class.”

Rivers’ awards span a broad range of categories, highlighting the breadth of the full-service agency’s capabilities. In the campaign category, Rivers’ work received an award of distinction for the following:

· Experience Downtown Chapel Hill: Promotional for Integrated Campaign

In the Individual – Education for Online Video category, the Calibration Safety Video for AgLogic Chemical received a distinction award. The Rivers team shot the footage, conducted the interviews, produced the motion graphics and edited the eight-minute tutorial video.

A second Rivers’ video also was recognized in the General Commercials category. The Hampton Farms ACC Broadcast spot is a high-energy, animated commercial created to run specifically during televised ACC basketball games.
