Stamats has won seven gold awards at the recent 24th Annual Admissions Advertising Awards. In addition, we surpassed the seven prestigious awards and catapulted to “Best of Show” status for Harvard’s Graduate School of Education student viewbook.

We’re proud to announce this, of course, and equally proud of the in-house creative, sales, and consulting teams that pulled this off. It’s a big deal to win Admissions Advertising awards because they recognize how our efforts have fared in higher education marketing. It’s an honor and a tribute to our creativity and industry.

But more importantly, it also says something about how we help our clients achieve their goals. Being recognized in this category says we accomplished something for our clients—this is the the ultimate goal of the kind of creativity we specialize in—the kind that communicates our clients’ brands and helps them connect with their key constituencies. For us, this is even more important than winning awards…

Official Press Release

(Cedar Rapids, Iowa) – Stamats, Inc. was awarded seven gold awards at the national 24th Annual Admissions Advertising Awards as well as “Best of Show” status for the Harvard Graduate School of Education student viewbook.

The awards were sponsored by Admissions Marketing Report, a national publication focused on higher education admissions marketing. The Admissions Advertising Awards is the largest educational advertising awards competition in the country. This year, over two-thousand entries were received from more than one-thousand colleges and universities from all fifty states and foreign countries.

Only sixteen entries were recognized by the judges as a “Best of Show” winner. The Stamats-produced piece for Harvard University was one of the sixteen chosen from the large field of entries.

The Harvard Graduate School of Education’s “Impact the World” student viewbook was written and designed to communicate Harvard’s role in the rapidly changing landscape of modern education.

Stamats was also represented with winning entries at the 40th Annual ADDY Awards in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Stamats received one Best of Category award, four Gold ADDY’s and fifteen Silver ADDY’s.

“Both the national and local award programs present opportunities to recognize and honor creativity in our industry,” said Kevin Mellen, Stamats design director. “Our several gold and silver awards and top ‘Best of Show’ award reflect the pinnacle of our creative efforts.”

“We are pleased that our work with Harvard and other institutions has resulted in these honors,” said Guy Wendler, Stamats president and CEO. “All the awards solidify our continual commitment to creatively partner with higher education clients, and help colleges and universities achieve their goals.”
