MIA The Rocky Advertising Award
Honoring the best print advertising, collateral material, broadcast, and point of sale material by member stone industry companies. The winners were presented "Rocky" awards and certificates at a special ceremony during StonExpo in Las Vegas, October 17, 2008.
The purpose of the competition was simply to honor superior efforts by companies, their ad agencies, art studios or broadcast media producers and to showcase them at StonExpo and in other ways following the competition. Judging was done by a panel of advertising experts with no connection to the stone industry or MIA. The competition was open to all MIA members around the world, including directors and officers.
The Rocky Advertising Awards Competition was sponsored by Salem Stone of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
