Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) March 08, 2013
The Little Rock chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF-Little Rock) honored Cranford Johnson Robinson Woods (CJRW) with 72 ADDY Awards on February 15, slightly more than half of the total professional awards given at the 2013 ceremony.
The agency won 72 of 143 total professional awards including four special judges' awards for Best of Show, Best of Broadcast, Best of Web and Best Art Direction. The agency's awards were won on behalf of 27 different clients.
"Our talented team is committed to creating great work that gets great results for our clients, so we are tremendously pleased and honored by the outcome of the 2013 AAF-Little Rock ADDY Awards," said Wayne Woods, chairman and CEO of CJRW. “We returned to the AAF-Little Rock ADDY competition last year after a six-year absence and we won more than 80 awards, some of which went on to win regional and national ADDYs. We expect some of our honored work this year will do the same.”
There were 413 professional and student entries submitted in this year's competition. The gold and silver winners will move on to regional ADDY awards competition, and those winners will move on to the national ADDY awards.
“Recent research has shown that advertising honored for creativity can be more effective at driving sales, while also improving brand image in an increasingly crowded marketplace,” said Jay Cranford, CJRW senior vice president and chief creative officer. “CJRW is a results-oriented agency, and we believe that results come from developing the best possible creative work for our clients.”
