July 9, 2015 Chapman Cubine Adams + Hussey (CCAH), a full-service direct marketing firm serving global nonprofit organizations, announced today that the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW) awarded the firm 13 MAXI Awards, including a platinum Big Idea Award for Guide Dogs for the Blind’s Cookie Cutter Cultivation package. This is the 22nd consecutive year in which CCAH and its clients collected more MAXI Awards than any other marketing team.

Established in 1979, the MAXI Award, which stands for Marketing Award for eXcellence & Innovation, recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of direct marketing. All MAXI Awards entries are judged on results, strategy, copy, design/format, production and innovation, with the greatest weight placed on campaign results.
