Mardi Gras frivolity was in the air at the 2016 ADDY Awards, hosted by the Polk County chapter of the American Advertising Federation. An annual gathering to honor excellence in the art of advertising, the ADDYs offer local industry pros an occasion to cut loose and applaud outstanding creative work.
In keeping with this year’s “Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler” theme, the Lakeland Center venue was transformed into a colorful French Quarter fantasyland. Authentic Cajun cuisine, a live brass band (and yes, even a giant snapping turtle), helped create a festive “on-the-bayou” atmosphere that put everyone in the mood to celebrate.
And celebrate we did! At the end of the evening, CNP took home an impressive number of wins — six Gold ADDYs, eight Silver ADDYs, two “Best in Category” awards and two out of three Judge’s Choice awards.
It’s always a privilege to be recognized for delivering great work, and we are so thankful for the clients who give us the opportunity to do just that. With the excitement of a big win under our belt, our entire team is fully energized and looking forward to creating lots more amazing work in the year to come.
