AAEM Receives MarCom Awards for Website and Publications

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) has been recognized by the MarCom Awards for the creative design of the AAEM website and the bi-monthly newsletter, Common Sense. The MarCom awards are an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement in marketing and communication. 

The awards are administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals. This international organization consists of several thousand creative professionals and oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and sets standards for excellence.

Based upon the evaluation of the judges:

  • The AAEM website achieved Gold Winner status in the “Association Website” category.
  • Additionally, the bi-monthly newsletter, Common Sense, achieved an Honorable Mention in the “Print Newsletter Design” category.

The judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talents exceed a high standard of excellence whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. AAEM joined with nearly 6,000 entrants from throughout the United States, Canada, and several other countries in the MarCom Awards 2012 competition.

The Gold Award is presented to those entries judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm. The AAEM website was among approximately 18 percent of entrants that were Gold Winners. Honorable Mention certificates are granted to those entries that meet the expectations of the judges. Common Sense was among approximately 10 percent of entrants that were Honorable Mention winners.

Both the website and Common Sense have recently undergone design changes. A brand-new website design was launched in May 2012, and Common Sense debuted a new layout in the July/August 2012 issue.

AAEM is also pleased to note that the Resident and Student Association (AAEM/RSA) received Gold Award status for their “With You All the Way” recruitment guide in the “Brochure/Recruitment” category.
