Frederick, MD (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Frederick Gorilla magazine, the most talked about current events magazine covering business, life and politics in Frederick, Md., was honored with two American Advertising Awards, presented by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) of Greater Frederick on March 1 in Walkersville, Md. The American Advertising Awards competition is considered the “Oscars” of the advertising world.
Frederick Gorilla’s American Advertising Award winnings consist of:
- A Silver Award in the publication design, covers category for the August/September 2013 issue cover, featuring an original work from artists Rivers Scott Fisher and Ed Ramsburg, and
- A Silver Award issue in the publication design, covers category for the October/November 2013 election-themed “Go Vote Frederick” illustrated cover.
Frederick Gorilla is published by Graphcom Publishing, a division of Graphcom, a full-service marketing and communications firm in Gettysburg.
“This awards announcement is an awesome way to recognize the efforts of everyone on the Frederick Gorilla team — our writers, photographers, editors, designers, sales and production staff. We couldn’t create each issue without them and the high level of creativity they bring to each issue,” said Troy Dean, creative director of Frederick Gorilla.
“Three years ago, when this publication appeared on the Frederick scene, I was immediately attracted to its edgy style and the stories that dug into the issues the mainstream media were glossing over or ignoring completely. We want to continue bringing our readers these compelling stories, and we are honored to receive such recognition for our work from the judges,” said Graphcom President Matt Livelsberger.
About the American Advertising Awards
Attracting nearly 60,000 entries each year nationwide, the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) American Advertising Awards have become the largest and most comprehensive advertising competition. The American Advertising Awards originated in the 4th District in 1960 and became a three-tiered national competition in 1968.
Sponsored by the AAF, the awards honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. Each year, the competition begins with contests in the nation’s more than 200 AAF member clubs, where entries must be submitted and judged to be eligible for the American Advertising Awards process. Local winners proceed to 15 regional competitions, and those winners advance to the national finals.
Proceeds from the American Advertising Awards program on all levels of competition go back into the industry through the work of the AAF and its members, especially in the areas of advertising education and public service advertising.
