2020 Knoxville ADDY Award Winners

We’ve officially reached Don Draper status… meaning we accepted some advertising awards with an Old Fashioned in hand.

Each year, the American Advertising Federation (AAF) facilitates and hosts the ADDY Awards, the world’s largest advertising competition. The awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types.

In February, the entire Big Slate Media team donned their greatest Gatsby attire and freshest flapper accessories to attend the AAF Knoxville 2020 Roaring ADDY Awards at the Mill & Mine in downtown Knoxville. This was the first year we entered work for consideration, and we were thrilled to receive awards for every project we submitted!

We are beyond thankful for the work we get to do with our incredible clients and the team we get to do it with. The ADDY Awards were a great reminder of that, as well as how amazing and supportive the local advertising community is in Knoxville.
