Orlando, Fla., May 1, 2014 – Global-5 Communications’ PSTA Cares commercial campaign was recently recognized by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts for its creative excellence in producing three Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) television commercials. The commercials, which help promote the safety and security benefits that PSTA offers, were honored with a Silver Award of Distinction in the 20th Annual Communicator Awards.

“We are both excited and amazed by the quality of work received for the 20th Annual Communicator Awards.  This year’s class of entries is a true reflection of the progressive and innovative nature of marketing and communications,” noted Linda Day, executive director of the Academy Interactive and Visual Arts. “On behalf of the entire Academy I want to applaud this year’s Communicator Awards entrants and winners for their dedication to perfecting their craft as they continue to push the envelope of creativity.”

Founded by communications professionals more than a decade ago, the Communicator Awards is an annual competition honoring the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and identity work for print, video, interactive and audio. With more than 6,000 entries received from across the U.S. and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creativity for communications professionals.

“This campaign has been a great success on television as well as on billboards, radio and the online digital ads,” said Mary Hamill, president and CEO of Global-5 Communications. “It’s very gratifying to work with PSTA, a wonderful client, enabling the transit agency to achieve its goals and to have the opportunity to produce award-winning work.”

This is Global-5 Communications’ third award for the PSTA television commercials. Last fall the campaign won the Best in Class award at the 2013 Florida Public Transportation Association’s (FPTA) 39th Annual Conference and in March it was awarded a Bronze Telly Award in the 35th Annual Telly Awards.
