Zapwater Communications has great clients. Our clients retain us to keep them in the upper echelons of visibility. We love what we do and who we do it for.

At Zapwater, we live by the mantra “We don’t make headlines, our clients do.”

While we don’t seek out accolades, when they come it is pretty gratifying. It reinforces that the representation we provide of our clients is of the highest quality.

Today, The Publicity Club of Chicago announced the recipients of The 2008 Golden Trumpet Awards. Zapwater Communications was awarded a Silver Trumpet in the “Government Affairs” category.

The Publicity Club of Chicago is the nation’s largest independent public relations membership organization. Since 1941, PCC has been providing educational and networking opportunities for Chicago’s elite public relations practitioners.

This is the third major award Zapwater Communications has won in 2008. Earlier this month, Zapwater won two Bulldog Awards, one of the most prestigious awards in the public relations industry and presented by the top industry newsletter, Bulldog Reporter.

Zapwater won a 2008 Bulldog Award in the Best Travel, Hospitality & Destinations Campaign category and in the Best Response to Breaking News category.

In 2008, all three of Zapwater Communications’ practice areas (Corporate, Public Affairs and Lifestyle) have won awards. I think that speaks volumes about the diversity of Zapwater’s clients and its quality of work. I am also confident when I say that I doubt there is another agency of Zapwater’s age (three years old) and size that has won awards for three different clients in three entirely different practice areas during the same year.

Thank you to all of Zapwater’s clients for giving us such great material to work with.
