UPDATE: Since this posting, two fellow bloggers – Melissa Chang and Christa Wittmier have passed along kind congratulations in their personal blogs. Thought I would share that with you. Mahalo for the support ladies! The Honolulu Advertiser also covered the event in the paper today.

The HVCB PR team accepts the Best of Show award with our client Darlene Morikawa (in blue). From left: Kim Miyashiro, me, Rhegan Liwanag-Luat, Janet Crawford (PRSA Hawaii president), Michael Ni, and Karl Nakagawa.

As many know by now, our firm – McNeil Wilson Communications – won “Best of Show” in the 2008 PRSA Hawaii Koa Anvil Awards for its work on the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau’s “Hawaii: As Seen On TV” campaign. This is a program in which we target national broadcast TV shows to come to Hawaii and feature the destination “editorially” into the episodes. This award was won for our work on HGTV’s Design Star Finale, Food Network’s Dinner: Impossible, and Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations.

It was a great night for the agency and in addition to Best of Show, as we won 12 awards total for the night. Most of any agency/organization represented.  Erika Engle of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin did a nice story today on the event and all of the winners.

Mahalo to everyone that won and particularly to everyone at McNeil Wilson Communications. Great job done by all!

    Congrats Nath and MWC!! Any possibility of a “K” being added to MW_C in the not too distant future? Ummm…just a thought.
    Now that another Koa Anvil Awards is history, can we get back to the main topic of this blog? ENSEN!! We’re dying to see some new footage.
