San Jose, Calif. (November 16, 2015) —Tech CU (Technology Credit Union) is honored to have received a 2015 MarCom Award from the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). An international competition that recognizes outstanding creative achievement by marketing and communication professionals, the MarCom Awards is perhaps the largest competition of its kind in the world. Tech CU won a Gold Award for its 2014 Annual Report, selected among 6,500 entries from 34 countries in the competition. Entries are submitted by corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising and design agencies, PR firms, production companies, and freelancers.
“We’re very proud of this award because our annual report is one of the most important communication pieces we produce each year,” said Tech CU SVP of Marketing Kate Duggan. “As a member-owned institution, it ensures transparency and informs our membership about how we are running this organization on their behalf. And for 2014, the concept, images and new photography all reflect a year of significant change and innovation at Tech CU.”
The MarCom Awards is administered and judged by the AMCP, an international organization consisting of several thousand creative professionals. The Association oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges and sets standards for excellence.
Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark.
Winners were selected from more than 200 categories in seven forms of media and communication — marketing, publications, marketing/promotion, public service/pro bono, creativity and electronic/interactive.
