On June 4, 2011, in San Diego, California, the American Advertising Federation presented its 2010–2011 National ADDY Awards for advertising creative excellence. Of the 1382 entries received at the national level of the three tiered competition, 87 professional gold ADDY Awards, 156 professional silver ADDY Awards, 26 gold student ADDY Awards and 39 silver student ADDY Awards were presented. Those competing for a National ADDY must first have been winners at the local and state levels. Only one school won four national Addy Awards so to win three is a big deal. Congrats go to Erin Mattingly (Student Silver Addy, Magazine Campaign—Raid Killer in a Can client: Raid), Kirby Sandifer (Student Silver Addy, Single Consumer/Trade Magazine—Simple Shoes client: Simple Shoes) and David Heflin for Student Gold Addy for his Mother Nature Network campaign. Way to go guys! You make us very proud!!! I've posted one sample from each of the three ad campaigns above.
