The South Carolina Press Association honors the best print and digital newspaper advertising with the PALMY awards. This year, we are proud that the ol’ City Paper won six first place, seven second place, and five third place awards and Best in Show for a total of 19 different awards.
City Paper production director Dela O’Callaghan and account executive Hollie Anderson took home Best in Show and first place in the Gift category for their Tiger Lily Florist ad. Judges said “bright colors – very eye catching. Not a lot of copy made this ad flow very well.”
City Paper staff was also recognized with a first place for the winter 2018 DISH Dining Guide and third place for the Fall 2017 SWIG Bar Guide. You can see all of the City Paper award-winning advertisements below:
