Announcing Our Fantastic Finalists for 2016 Pinnacle Awards!

Announcing Our Fantastic Finalists for 2016 Pinnacle Awards!

Every year, the competition for AMA|Rochester’s Pinnacle awards gets fiercer. This year was no exception, with a record-breaking 113 entries!

It’s challenging to develop marketing tactics and campaigns that are both creative and effective. Yet, according to the judges, Rochester area marketers knocked it out of the park.

“Many of the entries were really on point with strategies and creative solutions. They demonstrated great thinking and creativity,” said Judy Jessen, executive vice president of account services at Mitchell Allen Group in Virginia and one of this year’s judges. “The quality of the entries made the judging experience truly valuable.”

Congratulations to all the finalists! Get your tickets today for the May 19 gala to learn who takes home Pinnacle awards!
