Eagle Construction took home 16 honors between company and individual awards.
Best Print Advertisement (Company)– Richmond Magazine Ad featuring Eagle Moments Timestamp
The creative strategy behind this particular ad was to capture a moment in time our audience can relate to, an everyday moment that happens in a household. We decided to produce a series of ads to bring this “Time Stamp” concept to life. This particular moment in time captures children trying to “help” their mom with an everyday task, the laundry, which takes a turn in the exact opposite direction as they decide to play together in the laundry basket instead. Although not conducive to actually getting the task done, this is a moment in which the mom can’t help but laugh and enjoy this moment of humor, which our audience can relate to.

This award encompasses the best overall social media strategy for all social media platforms and eblasts in regards to concept, creativity, copy, and execution.
