TAMPA Fla. (PRWEB) February 23, 2006 –
Dunn&Co. harvested a significant crop of awards for the third year in a row Saturday, picking up 15 ADDYs®, including nine gold ADDYs® and a Best of Bay award at the annual Tampa Bay Advertising Federation’s ADDY® Award Gala.
The awards reflected work done in a variety of media, including print, out-of-home, promotions, radio and design.
“Dunn&Co. has been in business less than three years, and this is the third year in a row that we’ve ranked near the top at the ADDY® awards,” said Troy Dunn, Dunn&Co.’s founder and president. “It proves that we consistently turn out high-quality creative work on behalf of our clients, and we are very proud of that.”
Dunn&Co.’s Best of Bay Award was earned for a print ad campaign on behalf of The Melting Pot restaurant chain. Additionally, four gold ADDY® awards were earned for Melting Pot projects; three other golds were earned for work done on behalf of Shell’s Seafood Restaurants, and two other gold ADDYs® were earned for work done on behalf of Shakolad Chocolate Factory franchises.
Dunn&Co. also earned two silver ADDYs® for other Melting Pot work, and two others for Shell’s projects. An additional project for Shakolad earned Dunn&Co. its final Silver ADDY®.
“Of course, our focus is always on driving our client’s sales,” Dunn said. “But we can’t help but feel very proud when our creative work is recognized by our peers.”
It was the third consecutive year that Dunn&Co. turned heads at the ADDY® Awards. In 2005, Dunn&Co. earned 13 ADDYs®. In 2004, after being open for less than 6 months, the agency won 15 ADDYs, including eight Silver ADDYs®, five Gold ADDYs® and two Best of Bay Awards.
