The #IAmGallaudet campaign, which began in 2022, received an honorable mention in the Communications and Campaigns: Brand Reputation Campaign category at the PRNEWS Platinum Awards gala on October 18 in New York City. The entry, one of three finalists, was titled “Revitalizing Our Community After the Pandemic.” The winning entry, by Mixte Communications, was for “Positioning Father Joe’s Villages as a Leader in Homeless Services Providers.” It is described thusly: “As San Diego’s largest homeless services provider, Father Joe’s Villages engaged Mixte to help it maintain its relationships with the community despite regional setbacks. The campaign goal was to build upon Father Joe’s Villages’ reputation by building public awareness around the organization’s commitment to advocacy and long-term solutions for homelessness, as well as position it as a nonprofit employer of choice. The team’s efforts contributed to community trust, creating a profound response to the Children’s Charity Gala, which raised more than $1 million for the first time.” The other honorable mention in this category went to Davies Public Affairs for its campaign, “American Lithium Production Without an Engaging Story.” #IAmGallaudet is led by Bilal Chinoy, ’06, Director of Creative Services in the Office of University Communications. It is executed by a team of creative designers and videographers. Now in its second year, #IAmGallaudet features members of the university community, including students, staff, faculty, and alumni. This is the first time Gallaudet has submitted an entry for the annual PRNews Platinum Awards -- but certainly not the last! Congratulations!
