Lawton Marketing Group

Lawton, OK, January 2018- Lawton Marketing Group (LMG) was honored in the 13th Annual Davey Awards by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts in the Integrated Campaign-Promotional Branding category. With nearly 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work from the best small agencies, firms, and companies worldwide.

The Davey Awards is judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 700+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media. Current membership represents a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms including: Code and Theory, Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Keller Crescent, Microsoft,, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Your Majesty, Yahoo!, and many others.

The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock – the sort of thing small agencies do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids”, who derive their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets. The Davey Awards is the leading awards competition specifically for smaller agencies as they compete with their peers to win the recognition they deserve. A full list of winner can be found at

“The agencies awarded this season truly reflect the notion that small agencies produce big ideas. The work entered into this year’s Daveys portrays the smart approach to creativity that embodies the capabilities and talents of small firms from across the world” noted Derek Howard, Executive Director of the AIVA. He added “On behalf of the Davey Awards and our Academy, we want to applaud this year’s entrants for their dedication and commitment to their craft. We offer our congratulations once again to those selected as winners for the exceptional work they submitted.”


LMG’s award submission included an example of a social media campaign they did for Cameron University last year. The agency is owned by Lawtonians Coby and Kelly Edwards, and employs 14 full-time staff members. “Coby and I are really excited to win our first Davey award, especially in the social media category because we are so passionate about using it to help grow our clients’ businesses,” stated CEO Kelly Edwards. “We’re really proud of the work that we do, so it’s pretty amazing to be recognized for it on an international level.”
