CHICAGO – Flowers Communications Group finished 2023 with an impressive list of top honors received from highly coveted industry award programs. The agency added 22 awards to its trophy case in 2023.
After being named PRNEWS Medium Sized Agency of the Year, FCG started 2023 strong with new wins. Throughout the year, the firm was recognized for its outstanding work not just in multicultural marketing, but in a number of other categories, including media relations, social media, experiential marketing, video/content development and government relations. The accolades signify Flowers Communications Group’s continued excellence across industries and audience sectors.
“We pride ourselves on delivering innovative work for and alongside our client partners. These accolades are a testament to our firm’s longevity and ongoing success in reaching diverse audiences through culturally competent communications. We have forged impactful collaborations through forward-thinking strategies and new depths of creativity that resonate with consumers,” said Michelle Flowers Welch, Founder and Chairman of Flowers Communications Group. “Our people and partners are truly what make us great, and we could not be more honored to have our work recognized across the industry.”
Standout campaigns from 2023 include Famous Amos Ingredients for Success, which was recognized by industry organizations in five categories including ‘Corporate Social Responsibility,’ ‘Multicultural Campaigns’ and ‘Multicultural Marketing.’ The agency’s Democratic National Convention video collaboration led to four acknowledgements in ‘General Government Relations’ and ‘Best Use of Broadcast/Film/Video’ categories, among others.
FCG’s strong pulse on the culture shone through additional industry wins in new media and community relations projects. The firm bested as gold winner twice in ‘Best Use of Social Media’ for American Honda Battle of Bands (HBOB), an annual exhibition showcasing Black collegiate talent. HBCU programs like HBOB are near and dear to FCG’s agency leaders who are HBCU alumni.
