One of the coolest parts of entering the American Advertising Awards is that the winning doesn't stop at the local level. Gold and Silver winners are eligible to compete at the District level (this year's results here), and those winners can move on to the national level.
This year's national competition was judged June 1st in Washington D.C., with the winners announced and recognized June 10th at the American Advertising Awards gala at the ADmerica conference in New Orleans. And boy did Seattle represent! Not only did we send several agency and student winners, but we took home an armful of awards, including two Gold ADDYs:
World Famous - Gold - Cinematography - Odesza - It's Only (feat. Zyra)
Wunderman - Gold - Integrated Media Public Service Campaign - Mountain Safety Research - Community Chlorine Maker
POSSIBLE - Silver - Integrated Advertising Campaign - Local - Consumer - The Summit at Snoqualmie - Office Rescue
POSSIBLE - Silver - Online/Interactive Branded Content & Entertainment - AT&T - Santa Live
Publicis - SIlver - Out-Of-Home Multiple Installations - Visit Seattle - Little Free Libraries
Tacoma Rainiers - Silver - Book Design - Tacoma Rainiers - Our House Is Your House
Wunderman - Silver - Data Driven Media - Microsoft - GamerCrest
Wunderman - Silver - Innovative Use of Interactive/Technology - Microsoft - Gamercrest
See the entire winners list, including the work for Best of Show, Judges Choice, and all Gold winners.
A huge congratulations to all the competitors and winners!
It's not too early to starting thinking about the 2018 American Advertising Awards Seattle. We will announce a call for entries in the fall for judging in February, with our awards gala in March 2018. Keep up the great work!
