Gravina Public Strategies, LLC, based in Charleston, South Carolina, has been awarded the Gold Pollie Award from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC).
The award is given to political consultants at the national and international level.
Gravina was recognized in the category of Best Facebook Page-Public Affairs Division for its work managing the "Faces of Lawsuit Abuse" Facebook page.
"We are honored to work with great clients and have a wonderfully talented team," Curt Mercadante, principal of Gravina Public Strategies, said. "This award is a testament to the vision of our clients and the talent and hard work of everyone on our team."
This year's contest had over 2,400 entries, the most in AAPC history.
"It’s exciting to see the growth of the industry reflected in the Pollie Awards,” AAPC President Art Hackney said. “We continue to refine categories, making the contest easier to enter -- yet harder to win. This year’s winners represent the very best in business of politics.”
The winners were announced at the 2015 Annual Pollie Awards & Conference March 19 in New Orleans, La.
