Also, NOW Communications and the BCTF have been the joint recipients of several awards for their work. The television spot "Taking" won a Bronze medal in the political broadcast category at the 2006 Summit International Creative Awards held last April. The Summit Awards are an international creative competition for a wide range of categories with entries from 26 countries.
We also won a Gold medal in the International Television category at the 2006 Pollie Awards for the television spot "Most Devastating."
