The final entry deadline for The 2011 American Business Awards is fast approaching (it's March 31, although late entries will be accepted through April 27 with payment of a late fee). The corporate communications and public relations awards categories are among the most popular in the competition, so we thought we'd take this opportunity to publish Hilton Hotels' Stevie Award-winning Communications or PR Campaign of the Year entry from last year, in order to remind you that virtually all of the past Stevie Award-winning entries are published on the awards' website. You'll find the 2010 honorees in the ABAs here.
Hilton Hotels was honored last year in the category of Communications or PR Campaign of the Year - Reputation/Brand Management. The nomination was submitted by Hilton's agency partner, Covalent Logic. 30-40% of all entries submitted to Stevie Awards competitions are submitted by agencies on behalf of their clients, and the entering agency's role in preparing and submitting the nomination is always acknowledged.
