2010 Silver Award: 2010 AAHSA Annual Meeting Movie Trailer

Social Media – Internal Use

2010 AAHSA Annual Meeting Movie Trailer

Judge’s Comments: AAHSA used humor in a viral video to spread the word about the annual conference. The punch line of the video is the juxtaposition between extensive and expensive productions and a simple old email.  The video shows that the association knows how to engage, knows its audience, and understands their own limitations.

2010 Silver Award: 2009 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Report: Connection. Communication. Collaboration.

Annual Report

2009 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Report: Connection. Communication. Collaboration.

Judge’s Comments: The International Institute of Food Technologists uses its Web site to present a 24-page report covering a full range of activities that travel the connected world and showcase the Institute’s skills in international communication and in collaboration with others for maximum professional and organizational advancement. Emphasis is on excellent writing and organization by topics and interests. Design is basic and devoid of artistic flourishes. The association takes every opportunity to feature large, sharp color photographs of individuals and groups. The result is immediate reader appreciation of the computer’s ability to outdo many printed association reports in image clarity and size.
The Institute probably would never be able to afford printed reports for distribution to so wide an audience. This solution is one that every association should consider. The days of costly printed reports are all but over. The report meets all requirements for publication excellence.
