The winners of the 24th Annual Communicator Awards have been announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts. With more than 6,000 entries received from across the U.S. and around the world, the Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals.
Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America received two awards of distinction—one for the 2018 Art is Ageless® calendar and one for a video highlighting the lifestyle at Aberdeen Village, a continuing care retirement community in Olathe, Kan.
The Communicator Awards are judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 600+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.
“We are extremely proud to recognize the work received for the 24th Annual Communicator Awards. This year’s class of entries embody the ever-evolving marketing and communications industry,” noted Derek Howard, director of the AIVA. He added, “On behalf the Academy members, I’d like to applaud the entrants this season for their dedication to producing outstanding content as they continue to push the envelope of creativity.”
Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of PMMA, a faith-based organization with 17 senior living communities in Kansas and Missouri. Each community holds a juried art competition exclusively for people age 65 and older.
Historically, winning art is displayed in the ever-popular Art is Ageless calendar and greeting cards. Electronic greeting cards featuring winning artworks can be sent by visiting ArtIsAgeless.org. Periodic programs and classes are held throughout the year to encourage seniors to express their creativity. Started in 1981 when resident art was featured in a calendar, the competition is now open to all seniors in the area. Learn more about the program at ArtIsAgeless.org.
