“Getting designated as a Reed Award Finalist is extraordinarily difficult. Thousands of entries compete, but very few make the cut. That’s how it should be in the most exacting award the campaign industry has. So when you encounter a Reed Award Finalist you know one thing for certain, they produce work that’s head and shoulders above the competition,” said Shane D’Aprile, Co-Publisher, Campaigns & Elections.
“We are humbled and honored to be recognized at the 2023 Reed Awards with five wins, “ said Gregory Gleaves, Founder and President of Direct Edge Campaigns. “We pride ourselves on doing unique pieces in every race–we do not do cookie cutter mail. This approach has served our clients well, and we are appreciative to them for trusting Direct Edge to spread their message and persuade voters.”
