Discovery Marketing Group Captures 11, High-Profile Awards for Creative Excellence

Discovery Marketing Group, a subsidiary of Discovery Senior Living, became an eight-time winner in the 2021 Davey Awards competition, and separately added three wins in the Fall 2021 Digital Health Awards, the agency reported. Panels of judges from the two, independent competitions recognized a collection of digital, multimedia and content assets for excellence across multiple categories. Results of both award competitions were announced in November.

Conducted annually, the Davey Awards represent the largest and most prestigious awards competition dedicated to the "Davids of Creativity," or marketing and creative agencies that are fueled by big ideas, not just sheer size or spending power. This year marked the 17th edition, and was the second, consecutive year in which Discovery Marketing Group captured multiple top honors.

The Digital Health Awards are conducted twice annually by the Health Information Resource Center (HIRC), a national clearinghouse which aims to recognize excellence in original, health-related, digital content. Here again, Discovery Marketing Group earned awards in consecutive years, as a collection of prior works garnered four Digital Health Awards in the Fall 2020 session.  

Discovery Marketing Group's Davey-Award-winning works for 2021 included:

  • Gold Award: Best Website (General/Corporate Communications) -
    • The site also earned Silver Award recognition in three sub-categories including Best Copywriting, Best User Experience and Best Visual Appeal
  • Gold Award: Best Branded Digital Content (Educational & Instructional) - COVID-19 Questions & Answers Resource

Additional Silver Awards included:

  • Best B2C Integrated Campaign - "Because She's Mom/He's Dad"
  • Best Branded Digital Content (Health/Wellness) - Reimagining Senior Living: It's More Than Just a Place to Live
  • Best Website Features (Navigation) - New Corporate Website

  • Bronze (Newsletter Category) for Connection Newsletter, 2020, Vol. 3
  • Merit Award (Newsletter Category) for Connection Newsletter, 2021, Vol. 1
