Though I’ve since changed employers, I recently learned that I was awarded several PALMY awards by the South Carolina Press Association for 2013. Of course, these advertisements were a joint effort between an extremely talented graphic designer, Melinda Carlos, and myself. As an advertising staff, The Summerville Journal Scene took home two awards for a special section and signature page. I am fortunate to have worked with such a talented, creative group of people for the time that I did.
The PALMY Advertising Contest annually honors the best newspaper advertising in South Carolina. This contest recognizes and promotes individual efforts by advertising staffs of South Carolina newspapers, encourages creativity in advertising sales, layout and copy writing, and fosters excellence in newspaper advertising, which in turn produces maximum results for newspaper advertisers.
