Marketers award their best

The creativity, innovation and talent of local marketing firms were recognized at the first Cayman Islands Marketing Professionals Association awards dinner, held at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort on Friday. 

The host venue’s Laura Skec was awarded Marketer of the Year, and the Marriott also won the award for Campaign of the Year with its brand repositioning effort. 

After a cocktail reception outside, the more than 100 attendees were shown examples of the finalists’ advertising and rebranding campaigns throughout the evening, hosted by Matt Brown. Others who received awards in the various categories included BB&P, which won Digital Campaign of the Year for its “Upgrade Christmas” campaign for telecommunications company LIME, as well as the top accolade in the Service Provider of the Year category. 

The National Gallery won the award for Marketing on a Small Budget for its efforts on The Surrealists’ Ball, and Josh Pearl won the “Marketing New Comer” award for his work on the video honoring the Cayman Islands Fire Service. 

Massive Media earned two awards: one in the Best of Brand category for its rebranding of the Campbells law firm, and the other the People’s Choice Award, voted on by attendees at the event.
