NAPERVILLE, IL: July 5, 2017 – Out of more than 5,000 submissions from 24 countries, Paul Gregory Media (PGM) is named a Bronze winner in the 2017 Summit Creative Award® competition for its rebrand of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce selected PGM for its rebranding effort – the new brand was revealed at their annual Gala in January 2017. “We share this recognition with the chamber – we’re so thrilled that we had the chance to partner with them on this project,” stated Paul Feith, PGM’s President. He adds, “This was a deep-dive into the chamber’s brand strategy, messaging, and look-and-feel. The result is a re-energized brand with a progressive look that reflects bold thinking.”

The Summit Creative Award (SCA) recognizes and celebrates the creative achievements of small and medium sized advertising agencies worldwide with annual billings under $30 million. Celebrating its 23rd year, the SCA has firmly established itself as the premier arbiter of creative excellence for firms of this size and has become a coveted honor.
This year’s panel of international judges included professionals representing the following countries: Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, South Africa, and the United States.
Entries in 13 major categories are judged against a stringent set of standards. During its blind judging (entering company names withheld) the Board of Judges search for and identify innovative and creative concepts, strong executions and user experience, and the ability to communicate and persuade. Winners were selected in a wide-range of categories from print and broadcast to, online advertising and social media.
“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment in ones career. With vetted judges, tough judging criteria, two-phase blind judging processes, and strict bylaws limiting winners, only deserving entries receive recognition.” Said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards (SIA). “The creative work this year was outstanding. Watching the judges debate the details of individual entries in the run-off for the tops spots was inspiring.”
