Hammock Inc’s work for four of its clients was recognized in the just-concluded 2015 Apex Awards competition. More than 1,900 entries were received in the 27th annual Apex contest. Projects that received Awards of Excellence were:

• “A Proud Pedigree: Tracing the History of Scottish Ancestors and Their Journey to the New World,” in the Sept./Oct. 2014 issue of American Spirit magazine, published for the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, received a Grand Award for Feature Writing. The judges praised the article: “You don’t have to be Scottish to find this in-depth, well-researched and interestingly written feature article a compelling read. You come away with a sense of the background and history of a people, and, if you happen to have Scottish ancestry, you also get an extensive range of resources with which to trace and learn more about that ancestry. A well-told story.”
