The Michigan Humane Society was just awarded a silver Davey Award for its “Perfect Match” public service announcement. With over 4,000 international entries, the Davey Awards honor the finest creative work from the best small firms, agencies and companies worldwide.
The Davey Awards is judged and overseen by the International Academy of Visual Arts, a 200+ member organization consisting of top-tier media, advertising, and marketing professionals from the world’s leading organizations and firms. Current membership includes representatives from: Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Yahoo!, ADWEEK, BRANDWEEK, MTV, HBO, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, MySpace.com, and many more.
“This year’s competition saw an increasing diversified pool of entries and the high quality of work continues to push the limits of creative possibilities throughout the industry,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the International Academy of the Visual Arts. “Even in these tough economic times, we continue to see top-notch, high-quality work being submitted, which is a true testament to the dedication and capabilities of our entrants.”
The Michigan Humane Society’s “Perfect Match” public service announcement was filmed in January of this year and exemplifies the many “perfect matches” that are made at the organization’s three facilities each and every day. The video features the incredible talents of local actress Lauren Farhat, as well as “Joe the Dog,” an MHS alum. Local companies including Lerner Advertising, Milagro Post, Mindfield Productions and Ron Rose Productions not only contributed their time and talents, but made the production possible.
