The Lowcountry Phone Directory won three awards in a national Yellow Pages competition, and publisher Brent Cooper was named to the Association of Directory Publishers board of directors during the trade group’s recent annual convention.

The Lowcountry Phone Directory is published by Lady’s Island-based CPC, which Cooper owns and operates.

The 2017 edition of the phone book — the company’s 23rd — won three ADP Gold Book Awards at the association’s meeting in Fort Worth, Texas:

• Richard Peterson accepted a first-place award for Excellence in Cover Design and Art in the directory division.

• Ashley Cooper received a second-place award for Excellence in Television Advertising in the marketing division.

• Cooper accepted the third-place award for Excellence in Print Directories in the 50,001 to 100,000 circulation category.

Cooper also was one of two new members elected to a three-year ADP board term.

The 2017 directory was mailed in March to customers in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton counties. It features community profiles, images by local photographers and a newcomers guide.

The photo featured on the award-winning cover was shot by Eric Horan and shows the Gay Fish Company docks on St. Helena Island.

ADP was founded in 1898 and includes members from the U.S., Canada and other nations. Its Gold Book Awards are a jury- and peer-voted recognition of outstanding  Yellow Pages production and marketing.

Coastal Properties named Rockstar Franchisee

Weichert Real Estate Affiliates Inc. has named Weichert Realtors-Coastal Properties in South Carolina as one of only 41 Rockstar Franchisees in the country.

They have achieved a level of success with their franchise that others can strive for as well.”
