Dane County Regional Airport Receives Three Awards

Madison, WI – The Dane County Regional Airport (DCRA) was among the winning airports that submitted entries in the Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) Excellence in Marketing and Communications Contest.

DCRA received three awards in the competition: 1st place for Best Radio Advertising, 2nd place for Best Marketing Campaign, and 3rd place for Best Website Design.

“We are honored to be recognized by ACI-NA as one of the top airports in North America for the quality of our marketing and communications programs,” said Airport Director Bradley Livingston, AAE. 

This year 53 airports and airport authorities submitted 245 entries in categories ranging from printed materials, such as annual reports and newsletters, to broadcast advertising and social media campaigns, and to public relations and community outreach initiatives. Each of the categories was judged by communications and marketing professionals from the U.S. and Canada.

“ACI-NA congratulates the winners of the 2013 Excellence in Airport Marketing and Communications Contest, and we truly appreciate the quality of entries that we received across all categories this year,” said ACI-NA President Greg Principato. “The creativity and imagination exhibited by this year’s entries clearly demonstrate that airports continue to innovate how they share the message of their economic importance to the communities they serve.”

First awarded in 1990, the contest has become a focus for airport marketing and communications professionals to showcase their expertise. Award winners were recognized at the 2013 Marketing and Communications Conference and JumpStart® Air Development Program in Atlanta.
