Sullivan County Partnership investors Monticello Motor Club (MMC) and Media Solstice Marketing & PR were recently honored with a Platinum MarCom Award for MMC’s gatefold brochure promoting the private race track. An international competition, MarCom recognizes outstanding creative achievement by marketing and communication professionals.
Media Solstice developed the brochure on behalf of Monticello Motor Club in 2014 to educate prospective members about North America’s premier motorsports country club and private race track.
“We put our faith in a locally owned Hudson Valley firm and it paid off for us,” said Ari Straus, MMC Partner and CEO. “Our message and branding were both delivered in an engaging way and within budget; we were very pleased with the final product.”
There were over 6,500 entries to MarCom this year from throughout the United States, Canada, and 15 other countries. Only about 17 percent were awarded Platinum awards. Media Solstice also earned two Gold MarCom Awards and three Honorable Mentions for work delivered on behalf of other clients, including the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sullivan and Northern Orange Counties. Media Solstice also represents the Sullivan County Partnership, the Sullivan County Visitors Association, and The Chapin Estate.
“We’re so grateful to our clients who have put their trust in our team to deliver their message,” said Jessica Gardner, president of Media Solstice. “It’s a real honor to represent an organization like Monticello Motor Club, recognized nationally as the only one of its kind.”
“This has been a truly outstanding year for our firm, and these awards are an incredible addition,” she added.
MarCom Awards, administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), has grown to one of the largest of its kind in the world. This year’s winners ranged in size from individual communicators to media conglomerates and Fortune 500 companies.
