The recognition of our work across the board by a jury of our peers is one of the best endorsements we could ever hope for and all of those lovely PROMAX award statues will certainly help to open many a door to us as we offer our team’s incredible creative vision and talents to networks here in America. Thank you judges and thank you PROMAX!”
