Central States Media (CSM) recently received 3 American Advertising Awards (ADDY’s) for its work with a number of partners. Gold Awards were presented to CSM for the design and development of the Great Lakes Boat Building School website, www.glbbs.org, and the design, development and deployment of the “12 Days of Christmas” email campaign for Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa. A Silver Award was presented to Central States Media for their creative work in the development of Bradley University’s Men’s Basketball Poster and Ticket Book.
These three projects will be submitted to the ADDY’s district competition to compete for national recognition.
“We are honored our work has been recognized by the American Advertising Federation. We attribute this success to the strong partnership we have with our clients which allows us to provide them with creative marketing communications,” says Ann Johnston, President, Central States Media.
Sponsored by the Peoria Ad Club, the local awards recognize creative excellence in advertising and design of promotional materials. The awards were announced during the annual American Advertising Awards Gala held February 16, 2017 at the PAR A DICE Hotel in East Peoria.
Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. The local American Advertising Awards is the first of a three-tiered national competition. Concurrently across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of 14 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national American Advertising Awards competition.
