Public Relations Awards

The work of Dennis Tartaglia and Tartaglia Communications has been recognized with more than two dozen awards.  These include the public relations industry’s most rigorously judged, top honor: the PRSA Silver Anvil.  Dennis won this award in 2006 for a campaign that announced groundbreaking physics results at Brookhaven National Laboratory and led to the Lab’s first philanthropic donation.

Tartaglia won Awards of Commendation in 2008 and 2010 in PRSA’s highly competitive tactical awards program, the Bronze Anvils.  The 2008 honor was for a media relations initiative that launched Somerset Medical Center’s Sleep for Life center to 100+ news stories, many of them in national media.  The firm won in 2010 for a campaign that brought global media attention to Brookhaven Lab’s science.

In 2012, Dennis was the sole recipient of the HPRMS Award for Excellence in Public Relations.  The award is given annually by the Healthcare Public Relations & Marketing Society of Greater New York to individuals whose work in public relations has had a major impact on a health care organization.  Dennis received this honor for his work on behalf of Neurological Surgery, P.C., a leading private practice that had gotten little media coverage before Tartaglia Communications was brought on board, but is now regularly featured in major media.

Dennis won another top honor in 2003, PRWeek’s Healthcare Campaign of the Year, for a campaign that generated two billion media impressions and brought biopharmaceutical startup Peptor to the attention of a number of global pharmaceutical companies.  His campaigns were nominated twice (2005 and 2007) for PRWeek’s Nonprofit Campaign of the Year, in both instances for secondhand smoke campaigns for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that supported state-level efforts to pass smokefree ballot initiatives.

Other major public relations awards include the PRSA Health Academy’s Innovation Award (2005), for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF); two 2005 Bulldog Awards, for Columbia University Medical Center and RWJF; Honorable Mention in PR News’ Nonprofit PR Awards (2007), for RWJF; the inaugural O’Dwyer’s Public Communication in Healthcare Award (2006), for RWJF; and 10 PRSA Big Apple Awards (2001-2008).
