We love celebrating Birmingham’s creative community, especially when we get to witness the wonderful work that our friends and neighbors are doing.

So, naturally, every year we look forward to Birmingham’s annual American Advertising Awards, lovingly known as the Birmingham ADDYs. And this year was no disappointment.

We got to see some great work from our peers, and we loved having an excuse to check out the brand new Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook. And we were honored to bring home 31 total trophies (8 gold, 23 silver) of our own for an array of clients.

Speaking of those who enable us to do what we do, thank you to all of our clients for working with us on all of your magnificent endeavors. This year, we’re proud to say that we earned recognition on behalf of TrimTab Brewing, Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau, Protective Life, Woodlawn Foundation, Sam Jones BBQ, Alabama Gulf Seafood, Southern Foodways Alliance, Go Build Alabama, InSinkErator, Sloss Music & Arts Festival, Sidewalk Film Festival, Zyp Bikeshare, Alabama Marble Mineral & Mining Company, Mr. Harry’s Chickin De-Lux, Valvoline, Birmingham Museum of Art, and McWane Science Center. (Whew. We’ve got a lot of friends.)

Here’s a full list of our awards from Saturday night. Thanks again to AAF Birmingham for the honors, and congrats to all of this year’s winners!
