Our Charlotte marketing agency was recently notified that we won three ARC awards for annual report design. The Crawford & Company 2016 Annual Report and the Curtiss-Wright 2016 Annual Report both received Gold, while the MAA 2016 Annual Report won Honors.
When designed well and presented in the right format, annual reports are a great way to present company milestones, offer a look ahead, and showcase corporate initiatives. To help our clients optimize this unique touchpoint, our investor relations team looks for creative ways to tell stories that transcend facts and numbers.
As the world’s largest and most respected annual report competition, the ARC Awards honor overall excellence in annual reports. Every year, a panels of international judges, including top-level investor relations executives, financial executives, writers, designers and photographers, select winners from nearly 1,800 entries submitted by some 800 different companies from 24 countries. Criteria used to choose winners include cover and inside design, writing, financial presentation and how well the spirit of the company is reflected in the annual report.
Founded in 1987, the ARC Awards are sponsored by Mercomm, Inc., the world’s only independent awards organization founded with the mission to advance the standards of excellence in the fields of corporate communications.
