#WOW: We Just Won Best In Category At The CUNA Diamond Awards
In partnership with Liberty Savings Federal Credit Union, Prager Creative just won the Best In Category Brand Awareness Diamond Award for credit unions with assets under $100 million. The Diamond Awards are the most prominent recognition of stellar marketing, advertising and branding work in the credit union industry. The competition is conducted annually by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). It was especially challenging this year. Out of 1,295 submissions, only 93 received the Best In Category distinction. This is the second consecutive and fourth total Diamond Award Prager Creative has received for work as Liberty Savings Federal Credit Union’s Agency of Record.
Prager Creative’s goal for the brand awareness campaign was to build a fresh message for current members and become more recognized in the community and as an organization that delivers financial services on a dynamic, individual level. Known as the #WOW Campaign, it conveys a message of optimism and empowerment – a direct reflection of the values emphasized at Liberty Savings. Headquartered in Jersey City, America’s most culturally diverse city for the third year running, Liberty Savings is chartered to serve everyone who lives, works or worships in Hudson County. Here, brand awareness initiatives and messaging must speak to many truths and experiences all at once given the varied financial statuses of the community. While some are financially advanced, others do not even know that they are eligible to have an account at a bank or credit union. With this focus, Liberty Savings strives to embody everything that is Hudson County.
“It’s a true honor to help Hudson County’s ambassador of financial stability and strength share its mission with their members and the surrounding community alike. This Best in Category award proves that the most impactful credit union brand awareness campaigns are the ones that stay true to the soul of the organization,” adds Ben Prager, Creative Director and Founder of Prager Creative.
As an industry leader known for its poignant insights across many market sectors, Prager Creative partners with credit unions across the U.S. to enhance each institution’s unique history and brand positioning through traditional and emerging media.
