Convergence Media Wins AAPC’s Campaign of the Year

We are incredibly excited to announce that Convergence Media was awarded “Best Campaign” by the American Association of Political Consultants at this year’s Pollie Awards.

The AAPC’s Pollie Awards are the most sought-after awards in the political industry, showcasing the best work in political media, management, and results.

The “Best Campaign” award is confirmation of the incredible work that Convergence Media did on the Karen Handel campaign, while playing the vital roles of General Consultant, Digital Agency and Media Agency.

While it’s impossible to relive the excitement of the most expensive House race in history, we’ve included a few highlights from our Convergence team in the video – click here to watch!

Convergence Media also won Pollies for the following categories:

  • Internet Advertising – House Special Election (Silver)
  • Best Use of Personality or Celebrity (Bronze)

These three Pollie awards are in addition to the four Campaigns & Election Reed Awards that Convergence Media won for our work on the Karen Handel campaign.

We couldn’t have won these awards if we weren’t working with such an incredible client in Rep. Karen Handel, and without our stellar team at Convergence.

2017 was better than our wildest dreams, and we are excited about what’s shaping up to be another great year in 2018!
