It’s awards season

ZLRIGNITION takes home 2 Golds & 4 Silver ADDY awards

While the Hollywood crowd is FINALLY enjoying daily meals again after last week’s Academy Awards — the nation’s marketing and branding agencies are just beginning its awards season. There are dozens of shows the ADDYs, CLIOs, WEBBYs and probably a whole show dedicated to the “best trade show trinkets” – hey, look they’re called the SIZZLE Awards!

Last Saturday night, Confluence Brewery kegs were tapped and the Des Moines chapter of the American Advertising Federation held its #HipsterADDYs awards show. The ZLR team was honored to take home several awards (Two Gold, Four Silver) and celebrate the great work our clients let us execute on their behalf. (pics below)

  • Gold (Collateral) Iowa State University

  • Gold (Direct Marketing) Iowa Economic Development Authority

  • Silver (Out-of-Home) Iowa State University

  • Silver (Branded Video) UnityPoint Health “True Stories”

  • Silver (Editorial Spreads) Iowa Travel Guide 2014 )

  • Silver (Direct Marketing) Iowa Travel Office

And a special shout-out to Sundog Studios (now Mittera) – their Gold ADDY for the “Hy-Vee Annual Holiday Crab Sale” newspaper insert got some giggles when announced (mainly due to the name & tipsy people like me in the audience) — but damn, that was a thing of beauty.

Congrats to all of the local winners and best of luck in the regional judging! (Nickelle)
