BALTIMORE, MD – The American Marketing Association Baltimore Chapter (AMA Baltimore) announced the winners of its annual MX Awards, on Thursday, May 19 at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park and Museum. The event, emceed by professional speaker and author Evan Carroll, marked the first in-person AMA Baltimore event since early 2020. For 37 years, the MX Awards have celebrated local organizations that demonstrate outstanding creativity, implementation, and results in their marketing campaigns.
Awards are presented for outstanding overall campaigns as well as the best campaigns in specific channels or elements. This year’s entries were judged by an esteemed panel of professionals from the AMA San Antonio chapter.
The Grand MX Campaign of the Year winner, Harvey Agency, put a new twist on the age-old holiday card tradition, creating a memorable mashup social media campaign with a digital card that blended the excitement of Shark Week and holiday cheer. The agency’s Hark Week card offered custom art pieces, minted into NFTs, with sale proceeds donated to The National Aquarium in Baltimore. Runner-Up Campaign of the Year went to the JCC of Greater Baltimore, which collaborated with its agency, Devaney & Associates, on A Good Fit, a digital-focused integrated campaign that resulted in 240 new memberships. 2nd Runner-Up Campaign of the Year went to the American Nurses Association for its COVID Vaccine Facts for Nurses campaign.
“We are thrilled to honor our region’s best and brightest minds in marketing. Now more than ever, we’re seeing creative innovation push our industry forward. It’s time to recognize those organizations and agencies at the 2022 MX Awards,” said Lauren Yoffe, president of AMA Baltimore.
