RPM Connect Wins Three Hub Prize Awards, Including a Top Award, in First-Ever Competition

Minneapolis Agency Wins Gold Medal

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 30, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RPM Connect snared three Hub Prize awards including one of only 12 gold medals awarded by The Hub Magazine in its inaugural year for The Hub Prize.

RPM won The Hub Prize gold medal for its "Walmart Continuity" program for both the ConAgra brands at Walmart.

The Hub Prize recognizes excellence among U.S. brand marketers, retailers, and shopper marketing agencies. With a dozen gold medal prizes, and one dozen each of silver and bronze, only one other agency won three Hub Magazine awards.

The Hub Prize celebrates the many ways in which retailers, brand marketers, agencies, design firms, technology companies, research firms, consultants, and others make the retail experience excellent for customers, both online and in-store.

"It is extremely gratifying to be recognized as one of the top shopper agencies in America," Robinson said. "Such a prestigious award underscores the actionable shopper expertise and proven results that RPM Connect delivers to clients."

The Hub Prize gold medal win by RPM Connect was complemented by two silver medals the Minneapolis agency also won for, respectively, its "Child Hunger Ends Here" program (client: ConAgra; brand: ConAgra), and its "Target Healthy Choice Launch" program (client: ConAgra; brands: Healthy Choice and Target).

All Hub Prize winners — who were selected from among more than 80 nominations — have been honored in a special supplement in the magazine's November issue. Winners also will receive a Hub Prize medal designed by award-winning illustrator John S. Dykes.
