UPRAISE Perseveres Through Pandemic Challenges; Caps May with 3 Award Wins
By Katie Parr
As humans, we are inherently social beings. This is especially true for those of us working in the communications industry. Following social distancing guidelines and shelter-in-place restrictions — while necessary to reduce the impact of COVID-19 — can be hard on our mental and physical health.
With the anxiety and isolation the last few months have brought, it’s easy to feel alone on this difficult journey we’re facing. At UPRAISE, we’ve taken this opportunity to connect with our team, share our challenges, and discuss how to forge ahead in the “new normal.” We’ve found ways to help get us back to optimal performance — with proven success. Over the past month, UPRAISE has received significant recognition for our work, earning three awards in May alone. This is truly a testament to the outstanding dedication of our team in partnership with clients who continue to move the needle in their respective industries.
Our recent award wins include:

UPRAISE is honored to receive the competition’s highest honor, the Award of Excellence, for our integrated campaign with Trifo.
