NEW YORK, May 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — 5WPR, one of the largest independently-owned PR firms in the U.S., has been named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the PR Campaign of the Year – Media Relations category in the 20th Annual American Business Awards®.

The award recognizes 5WPR’s work with client YellowHeart, an emerging platform looking to revolutionize ticketing by creating the first NFT tickets, and their partnership with Kings of Leon to release the band’s “NFT Yourself” series in tandem with their new album. The team ideated and developed a media strategy to execute YellowHeart’s first major NFT announcement, while effectively laying the groundwork for blockchain ticketing, establishing YellowHeart as the frontrunner in the space.

This recognition is well deserved.”
