Laurel, MD – LMD is proud to join our U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) client team and ICF Next and CACI partners, in celebrating international recognition for our collaboration on the award-winning marketing campaign for the 2022 President’s Cup competition.

The CISA President’s Cup Cybersecurity Competition IV was recognized as a 2023 Platinum Winner at the Hermes Creative Awards, one of the oldest and largest creative competitions in the world. The awards honor revolutionary communicators and creators who bring their ideas to life through publications, branding collateral, websites, videos, and advertising, marketing, and communication programs.

The President’s Cup is a national competition hosted by CISA each year to identify, recognize, and reward the best cybersecurity talent across the federal workforce. Tapped to brand last year’s event, LMD joined forces with CISA, ICF Next and CACI partners, combining diverse skillsets to bring the 2022 President’s Cup marketing campaign to life through 3D modeling, graphic design, animation, photography, and videography. The team poured their collective energy into the project, pushing the boundaries of traditional design to provide a fresh perspective aimed at both drawing in competitors and capturing their interest through several months of competition.

The team’s winning strategy of amplifying the event across federal departments and agencies, congress, and private organizations raised the profile of America’s cyber defenders and the rising cybersecurity workforce, while increasing public awareness of the competition’s value to the nation.

“We are incredibly proud to be honored, together with our CISA, ICF Next and CACI partners, with this prestigious award that recognizes the depth and range of talent on our teams, and the strength and value of our successful collaboration,” said LMD President Holly Huntley. “It is always an honor to support CISA, so it’s especially rewarding to know we delivered an award-winning marketing campaign to our client for such an important and impactful national cybersecurity event.”
