A Nashville native, Heidi Jewell serves as a senior account manager with Denver-based marketing firm VOCO Creative. Through her work for the Denver-based company, Heidi Jewell helped a VOCO client achieve a Davey Award for website design in 2016.

Established to recognize the achievements of small businesses in the face of immense competition from larger companies, the Davey Awards reference the Biblical story of David and Goliath, with the “Davids” of creative design gaining plaudits for their efforts to leverage big ideas, despite budget limitations.

Sanctioned by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a collective of leading visual arts professionals from some of the world’s major advertising, media, and marketing companies, the Davey Awards are open to any companies that fall below a maximum billings or earnings threshold, which is set dependent on the company’s line of business, but currently does not exceed $25 million in billing or revenue.

AIVA scores all entrants on a 10-point scale, with those receiving 9.0 or above earning gold awards, while those scoring between 7.0 and 8.9 receive silver awards. Further, the judging panel selects Best in Class award recipients from the companies that earn gold awards.
