TURNER Wins Three Trumpets at PCC Awards dinner

CHICAGO, Il, June 2014 – Turner won two Gold Trumpets and one Silver Trumpet at the Publicity Club of Chicago’s annual awards dinner, Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at the Palmer House in Chicago. The awards recognize excellence in marketing, communications and public relations.

A Gold Trumpet was awarded to “The Place Where Awesome Lives,” a branding/fund-raising video for Kohl Children’s Museum of Greater Chicago. The video explores why KCM is not just a kid’s museum – it’s an incubator for transforming young minds into creative thinkers, learners and leaders. Nationally renown director of children’s commercials and photographer Bob Ebel donated his services to the project. Terry Fryer of Third Wave productions (and long-time Steve Turner partner) wrote the video score. Max Gold was the editor.

A Gold Trumpet was awarded to “Grace Lives Just Around the Corner,” the 2013 Annual Report for the Geneva Foundation of Presbyterian Homes. The annual report captured the spirit of generosity that prevails in the Presbyterian Homes communities through heart-warming stories about acts of grace that embody the work of the Geneva Foundation and its supporters. The photographer was Jeff Sciortino, Turner partner and long-time friend, who also shot the recent Eric and Kathy campaign.

A Silver Trumpet was awarded to “Learning=Discovery,” the 2012 Annual Report for Chicago Architecture Foundation. More than an articulation of the year’s accomplishments, this annual report creates a dynamic conversation about how the Chicago Architecture Foundation is designing a new way of thinking about the future of Chicago.

More than 500 guests attended the 55th Annual Golden Trumpet Awards event which honored former U.S. President Jimmy Carter. The Nobel Peace Prize winner was the keynote speaker and received a special Award of Honor for his humanitarian work. Chicago television journalist Bill Kurtis was the emcee.
