PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – Hynes Communications today congratulated the firm’s own Emily Zanotti, whose blog, Naked DC,” was awarded Best New Blog of 2011 by CPAC and TheTeaParty.net.

“Hynes is proud to honor Emily for winning Best New Blog at CPAC,” said Patrick Hynes.  “As co-sponsors of BlogBash, Hynes Communications was proud to represent a host of clients at CPAC, and to support the blogging community.”

The CPAC award rounded out a successful presence by Hynes Communications at last week’s CPAC, 2012. The firm hosted hundreds of bloggers at key events throughout the three-day event, serving as co-sponsors of this year’s BlogBash, and managing the co-sponsorship of CPAC by Hynes client American Crossroads.

During CPAC, Hynes coordinated a cocktail reception for American Crossroads.  Over 100 bloggers and reporters attended the event, where Crossroads President & CEO Steven Law and Chairman Mike Duncan discussed the organization’s 2012 agenda.  Hynes also assisted with management of American Crossroads’ CPAC co-sponsorship throughout the three-day conference.

Hynes Communications also served as a co-sponsor of BlogBash, a yearly event for CPAC bloggers and new media professionals, which each year celebrates the hard-working members of the conservative media who promote limited government and conservative principles.
