In Nashville, Convergence Brings Home Two Pollies

Last week, the American Association of Political Consultants hosted their annual conference and awards show, the Pollies. Convergence is proud to have been awarded twice.

“People,” our barrel-folding novelty piece for Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley, won the Gold Pollie for Mayoral mail, after winning a corresponding Reed Award earlier this year.  You can see the piece unfold below:

We also won a bittersweet Silver Pollie for our work on the state legislative special election of Hillary Shields. The piece in question educated Democratic and progressive-minded Independent voters on the true partisanship of a supposed Independent candidate in a three-way election for the State Senate, using a short fold and a circus elephant to make our point. Unfortunately, our campaign fell short of victory — but we were very proud to work alongside the rest of the Shields campaign team, and Hillary herself, and we’re proud to be recognized for our work.

Convergence’s award-winning work from every year since our founding can be seen here.

Convergence Continues to Win at the Reed Awards

Convergence Targeted Communications has continued our hot streak of award-winning Democratic mayoral mail with our recent Reed Award for Best Mail Piece for a Democratic Mayoral Campaign. This marks the third year in a row Convergence has won awards for the Best Mail Piece in a Mayoral Campaign.

We were thrilled to help Gavin Buckley defeat the incumbent Mayor of Annapolis, MD. Voters affirmed  his vision for the city and the positive approach he took with his campaign. This mailer, with its positive and uplifting theme, featured artwork created by the Convergence team. Gavin’s campaign received tons of buzz for this piece and ultimately defeated the Republican incumbent mayor in a landslide.
