Concentre Communications, Inc. Wins Advertising Award from Water
Environment Industry

MADISON, Wisconsin – Concentre Communications, Inc., today announced that it earned a Best Presentation of Information Award for smaller ads from the Water Environment Federation (WEF) Citation of Excellence in Advertising Awards. The award was for one of its “Get Less with Parkson” ads, out of a series of five advertisements, it created for Parkson Corporation that debuted late last year.

Specifically, the print ad that appeared in the November 2005 issue of Water Environment & Technology (WE&T) was selected in the less than full-page ad category. In the ad, Parkson’s DynaSand D2™ Advance Filtration System was promoted for its outstanding performance as a low-pressure membrane system without the cost, maintenance and sensitivity with less phosphorus, nitrogen, giardia, cryptosporidium, SDI, NTU and TSS.

The awards recognize outstanding contributions to the water environment field through effective and original presentation of equipment and services. The panel of judges, both producers and consumers of advertising messages, came from WEF’s Manufacturers & Representatives Committee and the WE&T Editorial Advisory Board. They reviewed several hundred display ads that appeared between August 2005 and July 2006 in WE&T, and selected winners in six categories and two honorable mentions.

“We are very excited to have won such a prestigious industry award,” said Jennifer Dinehart, president and CEO. “We are especially proud of this award, because it’s the water environment industry acknowledgement of both the quality of our creative and its effectiveness in the marketplace. I also want to acknowledge and thank, Tien Barnett, our senior creative director who directed and supervised the creative process for this project.”

The awards will be presented at the WEF Exhibitors and Advertisers reception at WEFTEC on October 22, 2006. Recognition is given to the advertiser and the design firm responsible for producing the ad.
