The Baton Rouge Area Chamber has been awarded the best of class and best in show award for its 2010 Annual Report in the Southern Economic Development Council’s Annual Communications Awards competition.

The chamber also received a Superior Award for both the Creative Capital of the South website and overall marketing campaign, and the “Ready for Take-off” launch event for the Creative Capital Agenda received an Award of Excellence.

“Receiving the highest honor from SEDC for our 2010 Annual Report is evidence to the creativity and hard work our team continues to display,” Adam Knapp, the chamber’s president and chief executive officer, said in a news release.

The chamber took its 2010 annual report’s theme from Southern Business and Development magazine’s description of the area: ”Baton Rouge is the new economic development rock star of the South.”
