Marketwire’s July Hawk Eye Winners

Posted By Marketwired On August 22, 2012 @ 12:27 pm In IR/PR | No Comments

It’s hard to believe that another month has come and gone and we have some new Editorial Hawk Eye awards to give out.

This month’s winners did an amazing job and catching errors within a release and helped our clients avoid serious fall backs from the mistakes. Congratulations goes out to Deniellie Dy for noticing a financial number in the headline didn’t match the financial number in the first paragraph of a release. She also caught the wrong date listed for a conference call on another client. Melissa Houde from our Montreal office was quick enough to catch the incorrect spelling of a Minister’s name for a release relating to that Ministry.

To get to know our editors better we had them answer some fun filled questions which the graciously answered below.

Denielli Dy, Associate Editor (Los Angeles)

Denielli Dy [1]

  • What does Beyond Words mean to you?
    Beyond Words, for me, means combining actions with words – not just settling with written verbiage, but backing it up with action.
  • What’s your favourite movie?
    (500) Days of Summer
  • What’s your favourite movie quote?
    “I take pleasure in the details. You know… a Quarter-Pounder with cheese, those are good, the sky about ten minutes before it starts to rain, the moment where your laughter become a cackle… and I, I sit back and I smoke my Camel Straights and I ride my own melt.” – Troy Dyer, Reality Bites
  • What’s your favourite colour?
    White
  • What’s your favourite day of the week?
    Friday, it’s my day off.  :)

  • If you were stranded on a desert island, what would you want with you?

  • What would you do during a zombie attack?
    Play dead, teehee :)

 

Melissa Houde, Editor (Montreal)

  • What does Beyond Words mean to you?
    That we do such a great job, and offer such  great service that it leaves the client utterly speechless.
  • What’s your favourite movie?
    I don’t know if I have a favorite movie per se, but I’ll definitely watch any of the Bridget Jones anytime!
  • What’s your favourite movie quote?
    This did make me laugh out loud: Mark Darcy: Alright Cleaver, outside.  Daniel Cleaver: Should I bring my dueling pistols or my swords? (I suppose that as is it isn’t all that funny, but that whole scene, to me, is comedy gold.)

  • Windows, iOS, or Android?
    Neither
  • If I could eat any food what would it be?
    Oh dear….   If it was actually good for you, I’d say ice cream.
  • If you were stranded on a desert island, what would you want with you?
    A boat

    Crap!  I knew I should have read The Zombie Survival Guide!
