Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce Wins Communications Excellence Award for Eastern Shore Elf Campaign

FAIRHOPE, Ala. - (June 28, 2018) — The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce has been named an "Award of Excellence” winner in the Communications Excellence awards program presented by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE). ACCE, an Alexandria, Va.-based association, represents more than 8,000 chamber of commerce professionals, and 1,300 chambers of commerce, around the world.

ACCE’s annual Awards for Communications Excellence, sponsored by Golden Openings, Inc., is designed to showcase top communications and marketing work of chambers of commerce and similar organizations. Several thousand award entries have been submitted since the launch of the organization’s Awards for Communications Excellence, which is now in its thirty-fourth year.

The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce received an Award of Excellence for its Eastern Shore Elf Social Media Campaign which highlighted local shops throughout the holiday shopping season.

"We had a lot of fun with this holiday season shop local initiative,” said Communications Director Denise Curtis. "We want to thank all the local store owners and staff who made this campaign such a success by offering special deals and sharing the Eastern Shore Elf’s playful antics.” The Eastern Shore Elf will be back to find more great present ideas in 2018.

A panel of communications and marketing professionals from five U.S.-based chambers of commerce evaluated entries, which were organized by category — based on the chamber’s annual budget — and entry type: advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications. With more than 150 entries submitted in 2018, judges recognized 13 entries as Grand Award winners and 41 as Award of Excellence winners. Three Best in Show awards will be announced July 18 at the ACCE Annual Convention in Des Moines, Iowa.
