Our Awards


The Public Relations Society of America’s highest honor went to the Heart’s Desire campaign – an innovative program we developed for HCR ManorCare that allowed nursing home residents to experience or re-experience an activity they yearned to do. We also earned a Silver Anvil Award of Excellence for our work on behalf of the National Tree Trust – coordinating the simultaneous planting of the state tree in 49 state capitals on the same day.

In this annual competition from the American Advertising Federation to “recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising,” R/P has won scores of awards across the Gold, Silver and Bronze levels. Throughout our 20-year history, our work for clients has been honored in virtually all categories of print, broadcast and digital media.


You know you’ve been around awhile when not one, but TWO of your leaders are lauded for lifetime achievement. Martha Vetter, R/P’s founder and chief executive officer, and Stan Massey, partner and chief branding officer, each received the Silver Medal Award from our local chapter of the American Advertising Federation. The award recognizes their career of contributions to both the advertising industry and the local community.


Successful work for our clients has been applauded with honors from a plethora of groups representing different industries. Too many awards to recount, in fact. Some highlights include:

  • Platinum PR Award from PR News recognizing our work for Hospice of Northwest Ohio as the “best marketing campaign” in the country that year.
  • Multiple gold Davey Awards recognizing big creative ideas from smaller firms.
  • Creative Arts Award from National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization
  • Multiple awards, including honors from NATCO (organization for transplant professionals), Non-Profit PR Awards and Davey Awards for a campaign we created for Donate Life Ohio to increase donors for life-saving organs and tissue.
