NEW YORK, Oct. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Horizon Media, the largest and fastest growing privately held media services agency in the world, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded two TVB "Excellence in Local Media Marketing Solutions" (EMMA) Awards. Horizon received top honors, winning first place in the "agency category" for its work on behalf of Dignity Health; and third place for its work on behalf of Stanley Steemer, created in partnership with Big Belli Productions. The EMMA Awards recognize TV stations and advertisers who have partnered, in the past year, to create outstanding and effective local, multiplatform marketing campaigns.
"We're so proud to have been honored with two wins in the agency category," said Nancy Larkin, SVP, Managing Director Local Video Investment at Horizon Media. "We strive to craft campaigns that resonate with consumers, and create tangible results for our clients – these EMMA Awards are a testament to the quality and effectiveness of the work we did on behalf of our clients Dignity Health and Stanley Steemer."
Dignity Health's "Hello humankindness" campaign took first place in the agency category, and focused on revealing the "human" side of the healthcare category, in which patients can often feel like just a policy number. Horizon's work for the Dignity Health included impactful custom vignettes capturing "real acts of humankindness," each highlighted a person who went above and beyond to exhibit kindness. Additionally, on air "Hello humankindness" stories encouraged listeners to submit their stories online. The work helped lift awareness of Dignity Health's Southern California facilities.
The agency's work for Stanley Steemer in partnership with Big Belli Productions -- a pregnancy, parenting, and social networking brand based on filmed content – took third place in the agency category. Horizon Media orchestrated the Stanley Steemer and Big Belli Productions partnership and worked with CBS360 to create customized content that showcases the lives of expectant and new parents. The content educates the consumer about the importance of keeping a clean and healthy home in preparation for new children.
