Flow Communications has been named an 8th Annual Shorty Impact Awards Bronze Honouree for its work on Marine Protected Areas (MPA) Day 2022, in the Conservation and Preservation category. The same campaign also won the Audience Honour Award in the Pro Bono Campaign category.
The Shorty Impact Awards honour the purpose-driven work that makes the world a better place, by brands, agencies and non-profit organisations.
“Hearing this news was fantastic,” said Flow’s CEO, Tara Turkington. “This campaign is close to our hearts. We care deeply for marine protected areas and spreading the word about them.”
“We love it when meaningful campaigns like MPA Day are given the credit they deserve, not only at a local level but at an international level,” said Tiffany Turkington-Palmer, Flow’s managing director. “We want to be known globally as a communications and marketing company that does exceptional purpose-driven work.”
The 8th Annual Shorty Impact Awards winners and honourees were announced on 13 November in a ceremony at The Belasco theatre in Los Angeles.
