Normally, if we’re lucky enough to be shortlisted and win just one Clio, we’re high-fiving with gusto. But to take home 10 trophies after having 16 shortlisted entries? It’s about the closest we come to feeling what it’s like to win a Stanley Cup ourselves.
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) November 15, 2021
Dunn&Co., a leading branding, advertising and production agency, today announced that it won 10 Clio Awards during the Clio Sports Awards Summit, held Thursday, October 28. All of the agency’s wins were for its work on behalf of the Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey Club. No agency in Central Florida has ever won this many Clios at one show. The final tally of three Silver awards and seven Bronze awards resulted in the Tampa Bay Lightning also being named Team of the Year by the Clios, which included professional sports team representation from around the world.
The award-winning work was created for a variety of media including TV broadcast, experiential, online video, social and outdoor. The campaigns celebrated by the Clios this year included work that found inventive ways to connect fans to the team, even in the midst of a pandemic that resulted in fans having to watch sports from afar. This included two straight years of the Lightning winning the Stanley Cup. Work winning Clios include Be The Distant Thunder campaign, Tweet Tape campaign, Room&Boards (an AirBnB partnership), and outdoor for the Lightning, Thunder, Reign campaign.
“Normally, if we’re lucky enough to be shortlisted and win just one Clio, we’re high-fiving with gusto. But to take home 10 trophies after having 16 shortlisted entries?
