KC Strategies is the only political consulting firm in Texas to receive a Clio Award and a regional Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The firm has been honored along with media and advertising giants such as Leo Burnett, Jones Knowles Ritchie, McCann New York, Turner Entertainment Networks, Google, and Netflix, in spite of the tiny budgets and limited resources political campaigns have at their disposal.
KC Strategies has also been awarded twenty coveted Pollie Awards by the American Association of Political Consultants. Dubbed the “Oscars of political advertising” by Esquire magazine, the Pollies are selected by a blind jury of our peers every year. And the firm has received seven Reed Awards from Campaigns & Elections Magazine, the preeminent “how-to” journal of politics, focused on the tools, tactics and techniques of the political consulting profession. The bi-partisan awards are named after Campaigns & Elections founder Stanley Foster Reed.
Additionally, twelve statues have found their way into our trophy case from the Telly Awards, including at least one a year for the past decade. Each year, there are over 10,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries. A panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals judge the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.
KC Strategies has also been named “Best of Show” at the American Advertising Awards, been a finalist and Merit Award Winner at The One Show, been honored by the Webby Awards, and even recognized by the European Association of Political Consultants.
These awards aren’t about vainglory, but rather they are a testament to the ethos KC Strategies has maintained for over two decades. Be storytellers, not salesmen.
