A huge congratulations is in order for Atlanta’s favorite real estate blog as it is officially a recipient of a Gold 2008 Hermes Creative Award. This is a prestigious honor as the Hermes Creative Awards are an international competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. What’s unique about the Hermes Awards is that there can be more than one Gold winner in a category or there can be no winners at all – the judges evaluate every entry individually and do not compare them to each other. This makes winning an award even more difficult because there does not necessarily have to be a winner in every category. If the entry does not dramatically exceed the high standard of excellence expected by the judges, it will not win an award nor receive honorable mention. The judges are chosen by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals and are given categories based on their industry expertise. This year, over 4,000 entries from the United States and several other countries were judged in the competition, and only 18% of the entries received the Gold Award.
Atlanta Real Estate Forum is a benchmark in online marketing for Atlanta real estate. Launched in November of 2006, this real estate blog has received numerous awards and continues to keep the real estate industry up-to-date with pertinent news, community openings and the status of the economy. This Gold Hermes Award is the first international recognition for the blog. Congratulations Atlanta Real Estate Forum and keep up the good work!
