Dunn&Co. work is recognized for clients St. Petersburg Distillery and Tampa Bay Rowdies at AAF’s Annual ADDY® Gala.

Dunn&Co, a leading full-service advertising agency and production company, today announced it won seven ADDY awards at the 2016 AAF National ADDY® competition, held in Anaheim, California, June 7. The wins – the most by any Florida-based agency in the competition – included three gold awards: one in the television category for its “Bucket Challenge” TV commercial for Tampa Bay Rowdies and two for the identity campaigns for Old St. Pete spirits and Royal Mead spirit for client St. Petersburg Distillery.

“For St. Petersburg Distillery, we helped a new distillery launch several products with branding and packaging that stood out in an overcrowded space, and subsequently took the design world by storm. The fact that so many of the brands we created for them have been recognized as some of the world’s best designs has been an extraordinary achievement for both our agency and our client, said Troy Dunn, president and chief creative officer of Dunn&Co. “The Tampa Bay Rowdies offered us a creative opportunity to take the excitement and artistry of the game of soccer and bring it to life in media. Both opportunities are the kind an agency relishes and have been extremely rewarding.”

Dunn&Co.’s National ADDY awards:


  •     Old St. Pete Spirits Identity Campaign
  •     Royal Mead Spirit Identity Campaign
  •     Tampa Bay Rowdies TV - "Bucket Challenge"


  •     Banyan Reserve Vodka – Illustration
  •     Oak & Palm Rums Identity Campaign
  •     Oak & Palm Rums Packaging
  •     Old St. Pete Rum Packaging

In February, Dunn&Co. was awarded 29 ADDYs at the Tampa Bay American Advertising Awards gala, including a Best of Bay for its work on Banyan Reserve vodka and two Judges Choice awards for Best Design (Old St. Pete spirits packaging) and Copywriting (Hexa watches website).

In May, Dunn&Co. took home a Best of Show award for its Tampa Bay Rowdies TV commercial “Bucket Challenge”, along with 23 total ADDYs at the 4th District ADDYs, which represented the state of Florida and the entire Caribbean.

The American Advertising Federation’s American Advertising Awards are the nation’s largest, and statistically the toughest, national advertising competition. With more than 60,000 local-level entries competing for less than 80 national gold awards and just over 150 national silver awards this year, these seven Dunn&Co. entries were among the top one percent of entries from across the country.

About the American Advertising Federation’s American Advertising Awards
Attracting nearly 60,000 entries each year nationwide, the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) ADDY Awards have become the largest and most comprehensive advertising competition. The ADDY 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 ADDY process. Local winners proceed to 15 regional competitions, and those winners advance to the national finals.

Proceeds from the ADDY 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.
