Royall Media Inc., Orlando Based Advertising Agency Wins Several Communicator Awards for 2008

Royall Media Wins Award of Excellence in Interactive, and Four Awards of Distinction in Video and Print



Orlando, FL

In the world of media, a very important annual competition (one of the biggest of its kind) has come to an end: The 14th Annual Communicator Awards.

The Communicator Awards is the foremost international awards program, which honors the best works in advertising, corporate communications, public relations, and creative work for print, video, interactive and audio. This past year’s competition received over 8,500 entries from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of largest awards of its kind in the world.

“The incredible quality and diversity of this year’s entries was an inspiration to the academy and all of our judges. The work reflected the rapidly changing media landscape as the growing amounts of interactive work submitted pushed the limits of the medium, and the quality of the traditional work submitted was again remarkable.” -Linda Day, director of the IAVA.

The awards are judged and overseen by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA). The IAVA consists of 200+ members, each a leading professional in visual arts that is dedicated to embracing the progress and evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.

Several of these awards were given to Royall Media, Inc. (RMI); one Award of Excellence for their interactive flash website http://www.west57street.com, ‘West 57th Street’ for Hilton Grand Vacations Company, and four other Awards of Distiniction for projects in interactive, print, and video. The Awards of Distinction were for clients that included Ruth's Chris Steak House as well as Vines Grille and Wine Bar.

RMI is a marketing and advertising company that was born in Orlando, Florida, although has grown its reach farther than city limits. Having just won several of the 14th Annual Communicator Awards, RMI is readying itself for their upcoming projects with a great deal of excitement.

“Everyone involved with Royall Media has been really impressed with our rate of growth and the caliber of our new clients. We look forward to another great year.” – Shaun Whalen, Creative Director for RMI
