San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
Digital and creative advertising agency Piston has made it to the final round of the American Advertising Federation’s American Advertising Awards, formerly known as the ADDYs, with five national awards for work done on behalf of client Cars.com.
This year, San Diego- and New York-based Piston is the only agency from San Diego headed for the national and last leg of the three-stage competition that begins at the local Ad Club level. Moreover, Piston is the first San Diego agency ever to win more than three awards at the national level in the 46-year history of the competition. Piston also is the first San Diego agency since 2011 to make it to the nationals.
The awards will take place on May 31 at the Boca Raton Hotel and Club in Boca Raton, Fla., and will conclude the AAF’s AdAmerica 2014 conference. With more than 40,000 entries, the mission of the awards is to reward creative spirit and excellence.
While Gold or Silver designations are not yet known, Piston has won five awards for work done for the Cars.com brand. These awards include three for individual banner ads, “Car Chase,” “Walk in the Park,” and “Cheer,” as well as two for overall digital campaigns.

Whether Gold or Silver, our clients have already won. This work is all about the intersection of creative spirit and excellence with commerce, culture, and technology.”
