PPK was one of only 20 winners to be honored at the esteemed 2022 National Radio Mercury Awards Show at Sony Hall in New York. This is the most renowned competition in the world for radio and is the only national creative competition that is exclusively devoted to this medium.
Our PSA for the Animal Welfare Institute called “Worst Shark Attack Ever” won for the Best Purpose-Driven Radio Spot and we were awarded a beautiful trophy. The PPK team of Michael Schillig (Creative Director and Writer of the spot) and Roger Hughes (Audio Engineer and Voice Talent) were at the show to accept this elite prize. PPK had previously been a Finalist for this distinguished Radio Mercury Award for the past five years in a row – without ever winning. Until now. So, the 6th time really is the charm!
Numerous leaders from the creative and advertising community were in attendance at the show including Arnold Worldwide; BBDO; The Martin Agency; Goodby Silverstein & Partners; FCB Chicago; McCann New York and Detroit; Barkley; Oink Ink Radio; and many more.
Schillig, who was also a first-round judge in the competition, added, “The level of creative excellence and ingenuity at this year’s competition was truly exceptional as evidenced by many of the outstanding radio spots he heard across a variety of categories.”
