Spire Communications wins two Viddy Awards for original videos

Full-Service Communications and Marketing Agency Recognized for Digital Prowess and Video Story Capture with Platinum and Gold Awards

Alexandria, Va., December 14, 2023 – Spire Communications has been honored by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals with two Viddy Awards – a platinum award for an animated video created for Accenture Federal Services, and a gold award for a sizzle reel produced for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Earning the highest level recognition, the Accenture Federal Services video communicates the value of the company’s secure cloud platform. Spire developed the script and created effective animations to capture the value of a technical offering for federal missions.

Meriting the Viddy Gold Award in the short-form government category, “The DARPA Experience” highlights how the agency and its leaders push the limits of technology to excite the next generation of DARPA engineers. Spire’s embedded team working at DARPA created the video to promote the agency’s brand and support recruiting, events, internal messaging, and more.

The Viddy achievements recognize the exceptional talent of Spire’s content specialists, graphic designers, videographers, and producers.

“Communicating scientific and technical concepts is more than our job – it’s our passion. And no platform outperforms video in capturing people’s attention,” said Ivy Eckerman, president of Spire Communications. “I’m proud of the work we submitted this year on behalf of Spire and our clients. It’s a testament to our amazingly talented staff that we won in both categories we entered, and I look forward to seeing what we create next year.”

Spire is well known for its deep knowledge and experience helping government, technology, health, and science organizations capture and promote the work they do to improve people’s lives.
