Capen Consulting Wins Pollie Award – “The Oscars of Political Advertising”

RALEIGH, N.C. — Capen Consulting LLC is proud to announce its receipt of the Silver Pollie Award in the Direct Mail - Candidate Division at the Pollie Awards, hosted by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC). Often referred to as "the Oscars of political advertising," the Pollie Awards recognize the pinnacle of achievement in the political communications and public affairs industries.

This award honors Capen Consulting’s work on the "Keep Dunn Moving Forward" campaign, a series of innovative direct mail pieces that played a pivotal role in the successful re-election of Mayor William Elmore in Dunn, North Carolina.

"This one is really special to us," said firm president David Capen, "The Dunn mayoral race went into a runoff election in 2023, and we ended up achieving a higher turnout in the runoff than in the regular general election, with Mayor Elmore handily winning by 11 points."

The Pollie Awards was hosted at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. on April 18, attended by hundreds of political professionals from across the nation.

At the ceremony, the "Keep Dunn Moving Forward" campaign was celebrated for its creativity, high production value, and, most importantly, its effectiveness in driving electoral success, all while adhering to the highest ethical standards required by AAPC.

"It is humbling to receive this recognition from my industry peers," said Capen,"We're grateful to serve such quality candidates like Mayor Elmore. None of this would be possible without their trust and confidence in the work product we deliver. The best is yet to come."
