FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — M45 Marketing Services recently won a bronze ADDY® Award from the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) northern Illinois branch. Julie Beach, Peggy Drane, and Mary Schneider were honored for their work on a high impact direct marketing project for their client Nursing Consulting Partners. The awards celebration was held earlier this month at Prairie Street Brewing Company in Rockford.
The ADDYs are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition for excellence and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry.
