Crystal Wins National Business Communications Awards

July 9th, 2015 by Editor

Crystal Window & Door Systems won two awards recently for its 25th anniversary corporate video — the 2015 Communicator Award of Distinction from the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts in the film/video-corporate image category and the Bronze “Stevie” Award in the corporate overview video category from the 2015 American Business Awards.

To commemorate its 25th year of operation and the company’s growth from start-up to national manufacturer, Crystal worked with a New York production firm and its Emmy-winning director to develop a video that tells its story.

“We wanted something unique, not just a boring chronology of our company, but something that conveys our inspiring entrepreneurial spirit, the work ethic of all our employees, and our made-in-America products,” said Steve Chen, chief operating officer.  “I believe our corporate video achieves this and much more.”

The Communicator Awards is an international awards program honoring creative excellence in communications and work that makes a lasting impact.  Entries are judged by leading professionals of the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, a 600-member organization for traditional and interactive media.  Members include Condé Nast, Disney, Yahoo, MTV, Time Inc., and many other top firms.  This year, judges reviewed more than 6,000 entries in various marketing and communications categories.

The American Business Awards, one of six “Stevie” Awards programs, recognizes innovation, integrity, creativity and effectiveness in business organizations of all sizes and in every industry across the nation.  Over 200 business professionals participated in the judging process to review and score over 3,300 entries in a wide range of categories.

Crystal’s Bronze Award from the American Business Awards came against stiff competition from major national firms such as Gulfstream Aerospace (Gold Award winner) and Level 3 Communications (Silver Award winner).  Video winners in other categories included Microsoft, Capital One, Cigna, and Pacific Life.
