SourceCode Communications Wins 2020 SABRE Award for Everlast “Be First”

At this year’s PRovoke 2020 SABRE Awards North America, we’re honored to announce that we’ve taken home the prize for Consumer Campaign of the Year for Everlast’s “Be First” Campaign. The competition was fierce with over 550 entries submitted in this year's competition. Finalists in the category included industry disruptors such as, Edelman, Ogilvy and Current Global.

Everlast, a global icon, selected SourceCode Communications as its first PR Agency of Record in 2019 to launch “Be First,” a global campaign meant to communicate a powerful statement with purpose, authenticity, and ability to appeal to various audiences. Through extensive research we found that the boxing scene was filled with historical figures who were the first of their kind like Sugar Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali and Manny Pacquiao. When we looked into the boxing scene further, we came across Patricio Manuel, the world’s first transgender professional boxer. SourceCode and Everlast knew there was an opportunity to highlight Patricio’s win in his first professional fight and position Patricio as a ‘first’ just like the legends that came before him. Through “Be First,'' Everlast was also able to target younger generations including Millennials and Gen Z, who are invested in civil rights and social issues.

The campaign’s media strategy included a combination of pre-brief pitching, landing 20 interviews with national top-tier publications along with a social media driven campaign unveiling the #befirst hashtag across all Everlast social channels. You can read more about the campaign case study here.

We would like to congratulate all winners and finalists in this year’s competition and thank PRovoke immensely along with the panel of judges who spent time reviewing our submissions. We’re looking forward to next year’s awards. For additional information on the event and winners, please see the link here.

SourceCode Featured By PRWeek after ranking as the Fastest Growing Agency in the US

We’re so pleased to have been featured by PRWeek after ranking as the fastest growing agency in the US with 106.54% growth. The piece interviewed our founders, Becky Honeyman and Greg Mondshein, and focused on our rise on the tech pr agency ranking tables, some of our award winning work, as well as our growth numbers.

“It was truly an honor to see this piece from PRWeek. The annual Agency Business Review is the preeminent guide to agency performance and to rank so high in just our 2nd full calendar year was a ‘pinch me moment.’ Additionally, to be one of six small agencies to be featured and given a 9 out of 10 ranking was another one of those moments. We’re honored and are remaining focused on what got us here - exceptional talent and client service.” said Mondshein.

“The firm nearly doubled its number of retained clients from 14 in 2018 to 27 last year, and almost tripled staffers from eight to 22. In a year in which the agency moved into its first office, its top line saw remarkable growth at 106.5% to nearly $3.5 million. The firm is also up for Boutique Agency of the Year at the 2020 PRWeek Awards U.S.”
