Second Place in Division 2 Best House Ad/Ad Campaign

Irene Tyler and Stephanie Capria

Judge’s Comment: “This is nice collection of flyers and a wonderful example of what can be done with templates, etc., form services such as Metro Imagining. Myself, as a client in your area, these on-message flyers would break through clutter of other pitches and entice me without wasting my time.”

Second Place in Division Best Multi-Advertiser Page

The 46th annual World Series of Bocce

Judge’s Comment: “This section was just plain fun!”
