2nd Place – Gulf Credit Union “Easy Auto Loans”

Developing a creative auto loan commercial in a time when automotive dealership lots were empty due to supply chain issues from COVID was quite the task. Our team brainstormed many ideas and ultimately chose to go with a cheeky husband/wife dynamic of which both have a different idea of the “perfect” vehicle to buy. Well, when you finance your auto loan with Gulf Credit Union, you won’t have to compromise—you can finance two vehicles! That’s what we like to call a win, win, win!

Best Use of Social Media by an Organization:
3rd Place – DJ’s Boudain



Creating tasty content for one of the most beloved food brands from Beaumont, Texas comes easy to us. From developing recipes to mouth-watering photos to driving traffic to grocery stores that sell DJ’s Boudain, we are always striving to make boudain look tantalizing so people will give it a try!

If you’re from Louisiana, you might be hesitant to give “boudain” a try because it’s not spelled the familiar “boudin” way. Our job is to educate folks on the story of why the “A” was added in the first place—it stands for AWESOME! And that’s exactly what our content strives to prove.
