 In: Announcements

TrophySAGE is proud to announce that it has received three 2015 Communicator Awards from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA)!

The Communicator Awards is an annual competition honoring the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and identity work for print, video, interactive and audio. This past year, it received more than 6,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms, and public relations firms.

SAGE received a “Gold Award of Excellence” (AIVA’s highest honor) for our Out & Visible report. Out and Visible: The Experiences and Attitudes of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Older Adults, Ages 45-75 was released in the fall of 2014. The study explores the aging realities of LGBT people, as well as their fears, beliefs, behaviors and aspirations in areas such as healthcare, finance and retirement, support systems, housing and sources of information.

We also received two “Silver Awards of Distinction” for our Successful Aging webpage and for our work with our partners at the Diverse Elders Coalition on Eight Policy Recommendations for Improving the Health and Wellness of Older Adults with HIV.

SAGE’s marketing and communications have won widespread acclaim and numerous awards.  In 2014, it received an Award of Excellence and an Award of Distinction from the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA). It also received two awards of distinction in 2012 from the IAVA, as well as a GLAAD Amplifier Award for excellence in advertising and social marketing. In 2010, it received a GLAAD Media Award in Advertising for Outstanding Social Marketing for its New York City campaign on caregiving support for LGBT older people.
