The American Advertising Federation Emerald Coast chapter would like to congratulate the 2013 ADDY Award winners from the Annual ADDY Awards Gala.

This year marked 106 entries, up 51 percent from last year, making it a record number of ADDY entries to the competition, and the top number of entries in 2013 for the State of Florida. AAF Emerald Coast also ranks among the top 10 chapters in the United States for its number of entries.

The theme for this year’s awards gala was “Adventures in ADDYLAND,” where the awards were just as sweet as the record number of entries received for the ADDY competition this year.  This year’s theme was based on the popular board game, Candy Land.

“The annual AAF Emerald Coast ADDY Awards competition recognizes exceptional advertising created in Northwest Florida,” said AAF President and Owner of The Promotions Chick, Jennifer Jones.  “The ADDY Awards honor advertising excellence in all media channels including print, broadcast, out-of-home and public service advertising,” continues Jones.
