Weedmaps Marketing, PR and Social teams win big
By WM Communications Team
Weedmaps was recently recognized by the Clio Cannabis Awards, PR News Platinum Awards, Ragan’s PR Daily Awards, as well as at the first-ever Benzinga Cannabis Awards.
At the Clio Cannabis awards in Las Vegas in September, the Weedmaps team walked away with eight awards -- three gold, three silver, one bronze, and a Grand Clio! The Grand Clio was awarded for our Social Media work on the #SaveBrockOllie Super Bowl campaign. The “Brock Ollie” campaign was also awarded gold in the integrated campaign category, as well as a silver in the film/video craft/copywriting category for Clio Cannabis Awards.
PR News Platinum Awards also acknowledged the Brock Ollie campaign in two categories: “Campaign of the Year” and “Integrated Communications, Marketing and PR.” The winner will be announced in mid-October at a ceremony in NYC. Additionally, Ragan’s PR Daily awards listed Weedmaps as a finalist for the “PR Campaign of the Year” grand prize, also for “Brock Ollie.” The Ragan awards ceremony will be hosted in NYC in early November.
Weedmaps’ partnership with Cann for Pride 2022 was also recognized by the Clio Cannabis Awards -- with a gold award in “partnerships and collaborations,” a gold in “integrated campaign,” and a silver in “public relations!” The Weedmaps Strains Madness campaign in 2022 was awarded silver in the Social Media category for the Clio Cannabis Awards.
Additionally, Weedmaps' Tumbleweeds with Killer Mike content series received a bronze from the Clios, and was also recognized as a finalist in the NCIA (National Cannabis Industry Association) 4/20 awards.
Lastly, Weedmaps was awarded the “Hottest Cannabis Technology” award at the first ever Benzinga Cannabis Awards in September. The awards submission detailed how Weedmaps technology addresses the challenges facing both consumers seeking to understand cannabis products, and businesses who serve cannabis consumers.
