Award Season for DMi Partners: Agency Recognized for Marketing Excellence by Multiple Industry Groups


DMi Partners, a Philadelphia-based full-service digital agency with a focus on performance marketing, has won and been shortlisted as a finalist for several prominent industry awards. Honors from the International Performance Marketing Awards (IPMA), MarCom Awards, Digiday Worklife Awards and the w3Awards round out a successful year of recognition for the growing agency.

“Recognition of a job well done is always a welcome compliment, but in a year like 2020 it is even more special,” said Patrick McKenna, Partner and CEO at DMi Partners. “We are incredibly proud of our team for their ability to overcome a series of unprecedented obstacles, and it speaks to their dedication, professionalism and adaptability to create stunning, award-winning work in the face of such adversity.”

The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. DMi won platinum (highest honor) in the Product Launch category and honorable mention in the Affiliate Marketing category.

The IPMA Awards celebrates the industry’s most exceptional projects on a global scale across the USA, MENA, APAC, LATAM, to Western and Eastern Europe. IPMA will announce winners on November 24, 2020 and have shortlisted DMi as a finalist for their Most Effective Direct to Consumer Campaign or Strategy and Best Partnership categories.

Both the MarCom and IPMA awards are in recognition of successful campaigns with DMi clients Rastelli’s and LA Apparel. The Rastelli’s campaign involved DMi assisting the NJ distributor of high-quality meats as they shifted to a direct-to-consumer model and featured a branding revamp, affiliate and email marketing, website redesign, social media and SEO. DMi’s work with LA Apparel and collaborator ShareASale involved an intensive affiliate marketing campaign to support the leisurewear manufacturers foray into mask sales during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The w3Awards honors creative excellence on the web, and recognizes the people behind award-winning sites, marketing programs, social content, mobile site/apps and online video. DMi was awarded two Silver Awards in the General Websites categories of Shopping and Self Promotion for the Rastelli’s website and DMi’s own agency website.

The Digiday Worklife Awards recognizes media and marketing’s top employers and the business values that make them unique. DMi has been named as a finalist for Best Employer for Young Careers, a new category for the strongest commitment to entry-level employees in terms of professional growth and career advancement.

“We take particular pride in receiving the nod for Best Employer for Young careers, as developing and nurturing, positive agency culture has been paramount,” said McKenna. “For us to continue to deliver award-winning work for our clients, DMi must attract and grow top-tier talent, and this award is acknowledgement that we’re on the right track.”

DMi adds these honors to other recent recognitions for excellence. In May, The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts awarded DMi with their highest honor with the Communicator Award of Excellence in Corporate Identity. In March, the agency brought home gold for Logo Design in the 2020 Philadelphia American Advertising ADDY Awards, where their submission scored higher than all other entries and was awarded Best in Show.
