This week brought another first for Zapwater.


In addition to all of the awards our agency has been winning, we’ve just been named the best of the best.

Zapwater’s campaign on behalf of Downsize Fitness won the Grand Prize (or Best of Show) at the 2013 Bulldog Reporter awards.

What does this mean? It mean’s our campaign Downsize Fitness: Downsizing the Obesity Epidemic was judged the best of all winning campaigns in this national public relations industry awards competition.

Winners were chosen exclusively by working journalists from hundreds of entries representing the very best strategic and tactical prowess that PR/corporate communications has to offer. Campaigns were judged on a variety of factors, including the ability to achieve extraordinary visibility and influence opinion, as well as on their creativity, command of media and technology, and tenacity.

The awards are presented by Bulldog Reporter, publisher of the Daily ‘Dog online trade journal, the PR/communication industry’s largest circulation publication.

“This campaign won three Bulldog Media Relations Awards---an extraordinary achievement by any measure. But it’s no surprise when you consider Zapwater Communications Downsize Fitness campaign demonstrates all the classic qualities of outstanding public relations---solid research, brilliant creative, savvy media relations strategy, top-tier story placements and quantifiable business results. It’s every client’s dream. This is not the first time Zapwater Communications has won Bulldog Awards, so we’re not surprised at their high-level performance, but the Downsize Fitness effort was world class.” observed Bulldog Reporter publisher James Sinkinson.

Oh yeah. Zapwater also won two Gold, one Silver and one Bronze Bulldog Award. This comes on the heels of being named a finalist for six Publicity Club of Chicago Golden Trumpets. Our award-winning team has clinched 16 potential industry awards this year, 19 in 2012 and a total of 47 since 2008.
