A campaign web ad produced for Maine State Representative Jon Hinck’s Senate campaign, has earned a national award.
The American Association of Political Consultants awarded the Hinck-for-Senate video “Red, White and You” a second-place “Pollie” award for web animation and video for a Democratic candidate. Pollies are sought-after awards in the political advertising business and selected by consultants around the country.
The 55-second ad is animated with a voiceover that asks, “Is this what America has become; a nation run by the corporations, for the corporations?” Corporate logos of ExxonMobil, Pfizer, Goldman Sachs and other big companies appear over a map of the United States.
The ad highlights Hinck’s experience as co-founder of Greenpeace USA, as an attorney representing commercial fishermen after the ExxonValdez oil spill, and as a legislator working for clean air and clean water.Tweet
