Cranford Co. Wins Three Top Awards and 85 Total ADDYs

For the third straight year, Cranford Co. took home the most awards from the AdClub Little Rock ADDY awards—including Best of Show for Twitter’s “Social Events Campaign,” Best of Print for CARE’s “Paws on the Runway Campaign,”and Best of Public Service for Heifer International’s “Drama Llama Integrated Campaign.” Other Gold and Silver ADDY winners for Cranford Co. included PK Grills, Mira Winery, Williamson Insurance, B. Barnett, Museum of Discovery, Downtown Little Rock Partnership, SpotRight, HyperLeap, MacArthur Park 5K, Little Rock Film Society, Rose Law Firm, the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, Matt McLeod Fine Art, Wright Lindsey Jennings, the American Heart Association, and Komen Race for the Cure.

“We’re excited to see the work we’re producing for clients from coast-to-coast get recognized,” said Jay Cranford, Chief Creative Officer. “It’s important to support the Arkansas advertising community, so we can challenge each other to be our best.”

One hundred seventeen awards were given out in total at the show. There were 22 gold awards with 20 being given to Cranford Co. The American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, recognizing creative excellence and the very best advertising both in local competitions and nationwide. It is the only competition that includes three rigorous levels of judging.

All of the gold and silver awards from Little Rock have been sent to Fort Worth, Texas to compete in the 10th District ADDY Awards, up against the best agencies from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Winners from there will proceed to the National ADDYs to be awarded in New Orleans, Louisiana this year. “Of note this year was the large number of digital and social entries, including the Best of Show for Twitter,” said AdClub Treasurer Ramanda Cody, “It really shows the direction our industry is moving.”

Judges for the awards traveled to Little Rock from Washington, DC; Kansas City, Missouri; and Memphis, Tennessee.
