Winners to Be Celebrated During Event in Rome on October 13th
KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – August 15, 2023 – SweetScience, a full-service advertising, marketing and communications firm located in King of Prussia, PA, was today named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award for “Marketing Campaign of the Year Culture and the Arts” in the 20th Annual International Business Awards®. SweetScience received the award for its 2022 campaign in support of Philadelphia’s Faith and Liberty Discovery Center museum – “American History. Illuminated.”
Winners will be celebrated during a gala banquet at the Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Rome on Friday, October 13th. More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.
“This honor is a reflection of not only the creativity of the SweetScience team but the creative latitude and trust our partners at the FLDC gave us to find the right solution,” said SweetScience CEO Tom Conti. “The Faith and Liberty campaign presented a unique challenge in that it needed to resonate with both faith-based and secular audiences and I think we managed to strike the balance between both perfectly.”
Rather than focus the messaging or creative for the campaign specifically around either of those audiences, SweetScience opted to focus on the museum’s cutting-edge technology, specifically the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center “lamps” that create an immersive experience in which visitors can virtually collect digital assets that resonate with them throughout the museum. When visitors go home they can access their collected inspirations via the FLDC website and receive an even deeper and more personalized content experience. As a result of the campaign, the FLDC experienced a 67 percent increase in visitation in 2022.
One of the anonymous Stevie judges commented on the campaign: “The Faith and Liberty Discovery Center campaign demonstrates a well-executed marketing strategy that effectively addressed the challenges of misperceptions and competition.”
