    industry event

    TORONTO, April 22 /CNW/ - Cohn & Wolfe won Campaign of the Year award for
its outstanding public relations program for the Crock-Pot brand at the
Canadian Public Relations Society's ACE (Achieving Communications Excellence)
Awards Gala last night. Having won Gold in its category for Brand Development
Campaign, the Crock-Pot campaign topped all other Gold winners in every
category to take the industry's prestigious 'best in show' award. The
Crock-Pot program was based on the concept of 'Crocktober', a month dedicated
to slow cooking.
    "Cohn & Wolfe has far exceeded our wildest expectations with this
award-winning campaign. We are overwhelmed with the results we have achieved,
from soaring sales to media buzz, to revitalizing the Crock-Pot brand in
Canada," says Jamie Libregts, group marketing manager, Jarden Consumer
Solutions Inc. (makers of Crock-Pot).
    Cohn & Wolfe's team took home another gold award in the Best Use of Media
Relations category for the campaign "50 Years of Granny Chic - Corningware
Stove Top". C&W created this campaign to support the re-launch and 50th
anniversary of Corningware Stove Top - the iconic bakeware embellished with a
blue cornflower. Re-introducing the Corningware Stove Top to media through
themed media materials, a 50's themed media event and a national media tour,
C&W was able to position the Corningware Stove Top as the new "must-have" for
today's kitchen.
    The firm also received a silver award in the Community Relations category
for "Save the Leopard Frog," a campaign conducted on behalf of Credit Valley
Conservation and a bronze award in the Best Use of Media Relations category.
    "Cohn & Wolfe partners with our clients to develop strategic
communication programs that influences their stakeholders and delivers
tangible business results. Being recognized by our peers as having succeeded
