  • The Canadian Public Relations Society’s (CPRS) Best Creative Campaign of the Year at this year’s ACE awards in Toronto for its “Lungs in the Air” campaign on behalf of the Canadian Lung Association, with integrated agency partner, McCann Canada.

“Having brave clients across the broad spectrum of sectors, who put their utmost trust into us, is what makes our work and these award wins that much more meaningful,” said Martine Lévy, partner, Edery & Lord Communications. “We want to thank our clients, and we look forward to continuing our efforts in breaking new ground this coming year.”

Clients who are sharing in these accolades with Edery & Lord Communications include: The Canadian Lung Association, Mercedes-Benz Canada, Athabasca University, and Kilburn Live who presented World of Barbie’s global debut in Canada last year.

“I want to express my deepest thanks to the Edery & Lord team for their outstanding efforts, and for giving us exposure that we otherwise would have never had,” said Terry Dean, president and CEO, Canadian Lung Association. “Their campaign wasn’t a one-and-done initiative – it continues to be a great catalyst and underpinning element of all the work we are doing today across our organization.”
