On Saturday, February 28th, several DSers walked across the stage at the Downtown Hilton Hotel in Knoxville to pick up ADDY Awards for the past year's work. In addition to winning recognition for ALL of our entries, DS Strategist Josh Loebner was inducted into the Knoxville Advertising Hall of Fame. Congratulations Josh!

Gold ADDY Awards

Silver ADDY Awards

Bronze Citations of Excellence

"I was very proud to see the amount of entries that received gold and silver awards," said Creative Director Joseph Nother. Our ratio of gold and silver awards to total entries was the best of the evening. Our STEM Scouts Logo Animation also won a Special Judges Award.

We want to give special thanks to our local AAF (American Advertising Federation) chapter—and especially the ADDY Awards Committee—for the hard work invested in showcasing Knoxville’s creative talent. We’re also proud of our very own Sarah Loebner for chairing the committee.

The Knoxville ADDY Awards is the first tier of the three-tiered National ADDY Awards, the advertising industry’s largest recognition of creative excellence. Founded in 1959, the American Advertising Federation of Knoxville is a professional organization that promotes excellence and awareness of advertising in the greater Knoxville area.
