Kevin/Ross Public Relations has been honored with six awards in the international MarCom Awards competition. The agency was cited for excellence in multiple creative and writing categories while competing against more than 6,500 entries from the United States and several foreign countries.

Kevin/Ross earned two platinum awards, the highest honor MarCom bestows, for writing done on behalf of two of its clients. The first was for a commentary Kevin/Ross produced for SCAN Health Plan in support of legislation that would help low-income seniors stay at home (rather than in a nursing home) while still receiving the daily-living support they need. The commentary ran in The Hill and later in the Baltimore Sun. The second platinum award was for an advertorial it produced for Inneractions discussing addiction in the workplace that appeared in the San Fernando Valley Business Journal.

Kevin/Ross earned two gold awards for excellence as well. The first was for a commentary on “smart innovation,” which the agency wrote on behalf of Clear Vision Information Systems. That appeared in the Pacific Coast Business Times. The second was for Kevin/Ross’ work on Pulse, the employee newsletter of Antelope Valley Hospital (AVH) in Lancaster. The agency’s work on behalf of AVH earned two additional MarCom awards for creative achievement – one for a newspaper ad saluting the hospital’s 60th anniversary and the other for a seven-series direct mail campaign designed to better inform the community of the breadth of services, programs and resources available through the hospital.

The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communications professionals, both corporate and agency. Kevin/Ross was a five-time winner last year after being a triple winner in both 2012 and 2013.
