The agency is the only Bulgarian company to be awarded at this year’s competition.

Sofia, 2 November 2017 – Bulgarian communications agency ARUNA PR Advisory has been awarded a Gold Statuette at the international marketing and PR MarCom competition which takes place for a 13th consecutive year. The team is a Print Media/Creativity/News Release category winner for the Shapes in Grey Officially campaign which was rolled out on the occasion of the same-titled video release of the Bulgarian heavy metal band Odd Crew.

This is the only Bulgarian award at this year’s competition which singles out the most creative achievements by industry professionals involved in the concept, design and management of marketing and communication materials and campaigns. Participants come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising and PR agencies, production companies and freelancers. This year the competition saw almost 6 500 entries in all categories (print, web, video and strategic communications) from USA, Russia, UK, Canada, Turkey, Germany, India, Singapore, Denmark, Holland and other countries.

‘It’s no secret that heavy metal has become a truly global phenomenon because of the huge feeling of trust and unity between bands, fans and all people who, in one way or another, profess faith in the strong and genuine emotions’, Odd Crew commented. ‘That is why it’s great to see one of our partners receiving international recognition for their incredible work and creativity.’

‘This is a fantastic accomplishment for us and shows how much we’ve achieved as an agency in five years. While the rest of our campaigns speak for themselves, wins like this prove we do know how to deliver tangible results for both our clients and ourselves’, added Elitsa Winiarczyk, founder of ARUNA PR Advisory.

MarCom Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) – a 23-year-old international organization which has judged over 200,000 projects since its inception. Winners’ list can be found at
