We were honored to be recognized this week at the 2013 Pepperpot Awards presented by the Public Relations Society of America’s Philadelphia chapter. I’m not only extremely proud of my hardworking team here at Canary and grateful to the clients who give us opportunities to work on exciting, creative and thought-provoking projects, but I was also particularly proud to be a representative of the cultural community at this PR industry event.

Canary received a first-place Pepperpot Award for our PR and marketing work on the Association for Public Art’s Open Air and a second-place “Ladle” for our communications campaign for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Knight Arts Challenge Philadelphia initiative. I consider myself very fortunate to do the work I love every day with a group of smart and dedicated people. Winning awards for that work is icing on the cake.
You’ve taken the plunge and hired an outside firm — to promote a special project or a big event or to plan and lead communications on an ongoing basis. But with all that you do, how do you communicate with the communicators and build a successful partnership? How do you make sure your investment pays off?
