SevenTwenty Strategies Receives Highest Industry Honor

SevenTwenty Strategies is proud to announce it has been awarded two gold Pollie Awards from the AAPC, the industry’s highest honor bestowed upon political consultants at the national and international level. SevenTwenty was recognized in the public affairs division for best website and less than full-page newspaper advertisement.

“SevenTwenty remains on the forefront of innovation in technology and design,” President Pam Fielding said. “We are honored that AAPC has recognized the hard work and creativity our team delivers on a daily basis to help our clients tell their story.”

In the newspaper division, SevenTwenty, an integrated public relations and public affairs firm, was recognized with a gold Pollie Award for its work with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Together, SevenTwenty and AANP developed a comprehensive campaign to inform Washington decision makers about the high-quality and trusted role nurse practitioners play in American medicine. The advertisement ran in newspapers with a combined circulation of more than 70,000, which target key decision makers in Congress and the White House. As a result of the comprehensive campaign, the mentions of AANP’s Nurse Practitioner Week on Google increased from 780,000 in 2012, to 1,710,000 in 2013.

“Nurse practitioners are a trusted and skilled group of health care providers who are providing high quality, affordable access to patient-centered care,” Dave Hebert, president of AANP, said. “SevenTwenty was able to place our message front and center and show decision makers in Washington the integral role that nurse practitioners play in ensuring millions have access to highly-qualified health care providers.”

SevenTwenty was also recognized with the top honor in the highly-competitive Internet division for the public affairs website for the site StopExportingAmericanJobs.com on behalf of the National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO). With an increasing involvement in online advocacy, the Internet division was one of the most competitive for Pollie Awards.

“This year’s Pollie Awards were especially competitive for an off cycle with over 1,600 entries. We were pleased to see innovative voter contact and persuasion strategies applied in all segments, especially in our Internet and social media categories, which saw a significant increase in number over last year,” said AAPC CEO Art Hackney.

The AAPC announced this year’s winners at the 2014 Annual Pollie Awards & Conference on April 4 in San Diego, CA. The Pollie Awards (Pollies) are bipartisan honors awarded annually by the AAPC to members of the political advertising and communications industry who have demonstrated superior work on behalf of their candidates and causes. A blind jury of their peers selects AAPC award winners. Esquire magazine has dubbed the Pollies as “…the Oscars of political advertising.”

The annual Pollie Awards & Conference brings the leading political professionals in the world together to network and hear from top technology innovators, pollsters, pundits and service providers as the 2014 political cycle begins to heat up.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE).

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
