Priority Marketing wins third consecutive global ‘Benny Award’ for Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest campaign

FORT MYERS, Fla. (Oct. 28, 2019) – Priority Marketing, a full-service marketing, advertising, public relations and digital marketing agency, has been awarded a prestigious international “Benny Award” for its striking design work that promoted the 2019 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest.

Printing Industries of America recognized Priority Marketing as a “Best of Category” winner through its Premier Print Awards, the graphic arts industry’s largest and most prestigious international printing and design competition. The Benny Award is its top honor and celebrates exceptional graphic artistry and superior print quality.

“The Benny winners represent the best our industry has to offer,” said Michael Makin, president and CEO of Printing industries of America. “This year’s entries were outstanding. There were entries from companies in eight countries. Despite the fierce competition, Priority Marketing, through hard work and dedicated craftsmanship, produced a piece worthy of the Benny.”

For the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest, Priority Marketing created an elegantly designed auction catalog book and a custom event invitation booklet that included RSVP cards and mailing envelopes. Silver metallic highlights accented custom die-cut materials that featured warm blue colors to reflect the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest’s oceanic theme of “Making Waves.” Priority Marketing developed the campaign’s concept, imagery and specialized printing concepts, while Palm Printing provided all printed campaign materials and services.

“Our talented creative team and graphic artists always seem to stay a step or two ahead of industry trends, and they take great pride in creating cutting-edge designs that ‘wow’ our client partners,” said Teri Hansen, president and creative director at Priority Marketing. “We’re thrilled that our work has earned another Benny Award, but just as ecstatic about our role in helping make the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest such a tremendous success each year.”

Priority Marketing also earned a Certificate of Merit in the competition’s Special Innovations category for its eye-catching video brochure to announce the capital campaign for another Naples-based nonprofit.

The 2019 Premier Print Awards attracted 2,238 entries from around the world. Priority Marketing earned one of only 110 Benny Awards, which recognize entries that earned “Best of Category” accolades.

Priority Marketing is the only firm in Southwest Florida that received a Benny Award in 2019.

In 2018, Priority Marketing and Palm Printing earned a Benny Award for “Cheers to 10 Years! Engaging Hearts… Changing Children’s Lives,” an innovative print campaign that launched the 2018 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest. In 2017, the Fort Myers companies won a Benny Award for their collaboration on the Wine & Food Fest’s “Uncork the Power of Giving” campaign. In 2016, the companies earned Printing Industry of America’s Award of Recognition for a print campaign introducing the Wine & Food Fest “Magnolia Magic – A Celebration of Gracious Giving.”
