In Good Company

My question is this — and I’d love to hear your thoughts: does a “B or C-list” actress (think Crystal Bernard) consider herself fortunate to have really broken into acting — solidly, way beyond waiting tables on the side — or does she beat herself up about never having made it to Julia Roberts-level acting fame?

I can see both sides.

Last night, Fahlgren Mortine’s campaign for Lifeline of Ohio was among five finalists for Community Relations Campaign of the Year at the very glamorous PRWeek awards in New York City.

The “Live On. Ride On.” campaign, which found a generous and welcoming audience among motorcyclists for sharing the message of organ and tissue donation, won a Silver Anvil from PRSA last June.

But tonight it was not to be. And I’m putting myself in the “proud to have come this far” category. The four agencies who were our co-finalists in the category are all among the largest in the industry: Cone, Edelman, Porter Novelli, Ruder Finn. Lots of offices, all over the world. I’ve always known the work done by Fahlgren Mortine, with our 50 PR professionals based primarily in Ohio, could stand against anyone’s anywhere.

It’s nice third-party validation that the PRWeek judges agree.
