Hollywood’s elite weren’t the only ones bringing home awards this past weekend – the Brevard Humane Society was an award recipient as well. The Brevard Humane Society’s website was recognized on Friday evening, February 22, by the Space Coast Chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) with a Silver Addy Award in the Public Service Online/Interactive category.

“Friday night’s win was a result of an amazing collaboration with Rock, Paper, Simple and their passion and dedication to their craft. We couldn’t be prouder! Receiving the Silver award validates the efforts put forth by the entire team and to be recognized for the quality of this work by a group of peers is certainly very meaningful,” said Theresa Clifton, Executive Director for Brevard Humane Society.

The Space Coast American Advertising Federation presented its 2019 American Advertising Awards, also known as the ADDYs, at the Space Coast Health Foundation’s Center for Collaboration in Rockledge. This year’s annual dinner and awards presentation was attended by approximately 100 individuals of the local advertising and media community. The mission of the awards is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising in a diverse list of categories.

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local ADDY Awards is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of four district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY Awards competition. Therefore, entry in the local ADDY competition is the first initial step toward winning a national ADDY.
