“We were once again excited to honor and recognize the amazing work submitted into this year’s Davey Awards and are humbled by the exceptional work we have grown accustomed to seeing year after year. This year’s competition saw an increasing diversified pool of entries and the high quality of work continues to push the limits of creative possibilities throughout the industry,” noted Linda Day, Executive Director of the IAVA. She added “Even in these tough economic times, we continue to see top notch, high quality work being submitted, which is a true testament to the dedication and capabilities of our entrants. On behalf of the entire Academy, congratulations to our winners and thank you to all of this year’s entrants for your contributions and commitment to the advancement of the Visual Arts.”

Tina Dooley, MSA, RD of Amway said, “Given the fact that NUTRILITE is the world’s leading children’s brand of vitamin, mineral and dietary supplements based on 2008 sales, it was important to partner with a vendor who could incorporate engaging graphics and design into our realistic sales scenarios. This level of engagement and partnership gave our sales force the performance support and tools necessary to help build their business with one of the leading brands of supplements in the world. Working with Allen Communication Learning Services allowed us to accomplish this very task.”
