Ad Astra Magazine Wins Two Major Awards

The National Space Society congratulates Silver Marketing, Inc. for the exemplary work it has done to publish the Society’s Ad Astra magazine. Multiple awards were recently bestowed on Silver Marketing by the Service Industry Advertising Awards (SIAA) and MarCom Awards committees.

Silver Marketing won a Gold MarCom award for Ad Astra Magazine, Spring 2011 edition. MarCom is one of the oldest, largest, and most respected creative industry competitions and provides award recognition to individuals and companies involved in print, visual, audio, and web materials.

Silver Marketing also won a Silver Award from the Service Industry Advertising Awards (SIAA) in the external publications category for the same issue of Ad Astra. SIAA awards are given to top-tier organizations within the service industry. Three other SIAA awards were also given to Silver Marketing this year, including a Gold Award for a Washington Post newspaper series, a Gold Award for the Washington Wizards in the direct mail category, and a Silver Award for an Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association poster.

A full copy of the cover article “Steps for Planetary Defense” can be found on the NSS website by clicking on the image above.  An electronic copy of the entire  award winning magazine is also available, but only for members (you will need to login using your NSS membership ID to access the magazine).

Silver Marketing has been engaged by NSS to do marketing and digital and direct response advertising for a number of years. Silver offers a range of services – from email campaigns and internet marketing, to direct mail programs, print advertising campaigns, and marketing materials. Founded in 1984, Silver Marketing has been recognized many times for their work for clients such as the Washington Post, the National Space Society, AARP, AOPA, and CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield…among others.
