AAF Fourth District Presents 2013 ADDY Awards

Posted on in News

Jacksonville, Fla. AAF Fourth District presented its 2012/2013 ADDY® Awards for advertising creative excellence April 20th. The annual awards presentation was attended by advertising and media professionals from across the state of Florida and the Caribbean. Of the 1334 entries received by the Fourth District, 92 gold ADDY Awards and 148 silver ADDY Awards were presented. Entries were judged based on creativity, originality and creative strategy.


 The Mosaic award recognizes successful integrated multicultural marketing and diversity efforts that demonstrate the spirit of AAF's Mosaic Principles and Practical Guidelines. This year, McCann Port of Spain received the award for the BPTT “I4TANDT” TV Campaign done for BP Trinidad and Tobago.


Top awards of the evening went to the "Best of Show" winners. Alma DDB of Miami captured the Best of Show for the Hola Mexico Goodbye Clichés trailer done for the Hola Mexico Film Festival. Miami Ad School student Mary Beth Koeth garnered the Student Best of Show for her The Collector photography campaign. "The quality of work that comes from the state of Florida and the Caribbean is phenomenal," said Michelle Rushing, AAF Fourth District ADDY chair. "The ADDY Awards is a great way for our industry to come together in the spirit of friendly competition and honor creative excellence."


Sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, the ADDY Awards honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. It is the largest creative awards competition in the advertising industry. Gold ADDY winners move on to the national ADDY competition where they will vie against entries from across the country in a process that will culminate in the National ADDY Awards Ceremony held June 8 at the American Advertising Federation National Conference, ADMERICA!, in Phoenix, Ariz.
