“Winning a Bulldog Award is true validation of all the hard work that goes into a successful PR campaign.  It’s a chance for your whole team to celebrate, and it’s particularly notable because these awards are voted on by working journalists, unlike other industry recognition.  We have had the good fortune to be honored with a couple Bulldog awards in recent years, and it has served to further solidify our reputation for digital/social expertise in the sports industry.  We are also proof that a successful entry does not require massive agency/client budgets, but delivering on business objectives through creative strategy and execution on a shoe-string budget can be just as impactful.”Jim Delaney, President & CEO, Activate Sorts & Entertainment
