MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2009) -

- CG3 is one of just two North American studios recognized in the Agency of the Year category

- CG3 produces the best agency annual report (Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec)

The CG3 team is very proud to announce that for the third year in a row, CG3 was the biggest winner among Canadian graphic design studios at the Vision Awards, a contest organized by the League of American Communications Professionals (LACP) which featured more than 3,500 annual reports from 22 countries this year.

CG3 and nine of its clients (Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec, Telefilm Canada, Loto-Quebec, BDC, SAQ, Gildan, Supremex, Canadian Tourism Commission and Saint Nick Society) accrued 19 Vision Awards, close to double last year's total. Among these were three Top 100 (Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec (10th), Telefilm Canada (31st) and Loto-Quebec (64th)), six Platinum (Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec, Telefilm Canada and Loto-Quebec), three Gold (Gildan, BDC, Loto-Quebec), four Silver (Societe des alcools du Quebec, Saint Nick Society, Supremex Income Fund, Canadian Tourism Commission), and two Bronze (Telefilm Canada and Canadian Tourism Commission). CG3 was also one of just seven agencies worldwide to win an award in the Agency of the Year category. To be eligible for this category, an agency must have a minimum of nine different award-winning annual reports. For further information:

"The annual report is far from dead, at least at CG3 where our clients appreciate the expertise we have developed in producing documents that stand apart for their communications impact and the highlighting of their tangible and intangible assets", indicated Jean Lauzon, Partner, Graphic Design at CG3. "Despite increasingly tight deadlines and ever-stricter legislation, our clients empower us to produce documents that convey beyond the required minimum, notably in regard to their graphic design, creativity, themes, highlighting of key messages, clarity and writing quality. Of course, no one produces annual reports to win awards, but we appreciate the fact that communications professionals also recognize the value of our output," concluded Daniel Rheault, Partner, Communications.
