BLYTHEWOOD/FAIRFIELD COUNTY – Ashley Ghere, ad designer for The Voice newspapers in Blythewood and Fairfield County, recently brought home the Best of Show award for her advertising designs for the seventh year in a row. For the last two years, her Best of Show awards were won for ads she created for Laura’s Tea Room in Ridgeway.

Ghere received the state-wide Best of Show honor in the circulation category of ‘over 8,500.’ However, that ad also took first place in competition with both weekly and daily South Carolina newspapers with circulations ranging from ‘over 8,500’ to ‘25,000 and over’.

Winning 11 other PALMY Awards in all from the S.C. Press Association for her year’s work, Ghere earned five first-place awards for ads for Prince House of Pizza (Restaurant category), Reese’s Plants (Holiday), Simply Town Boutique (Fashion), Big Grab Map (Events/Entertainment) and Laura’s Tea Room (1/2 page and larger).

Ghere received two second-place awards for The Law Offices of Shannon Burnett (Professional) and Fireworks, Food & Music (Events/Entertainment).

She won third-place awards for Cuttin’ Loose Hair Salon (Professional), Blythewood Dental (Health Services), Fairfield County Animal Shelter (Public Service) and ‘Grab the News on the Go’ (Newspaper Promotion).

Her third place ad in the Newspaper Promotion category finished third behind the daily newspaper, The Post & Courier (first place), and the weekly Charleston City Paper (second place).

“Ashley’s ads are obviously some of the most creative in the state – in both weekly and daily newspapers,” said Bill Rogers, Executive Director of the Press Association. “Creativity is so important to make ads work for the advertiser.”
