PEG officially has an award shelf! We were nominated for and won our first Akron Addy Award last month for our University of Akron’s Men’s Basketball bus ads. The award ceremony was held at the beautiful Civic Theatre and was attended by the best production houses and advertising agencies in Akron. It was so interesting and inspiring to see how creative and original the ideas were, and it showed just how talented the people working in this area really are.
The theme was The Great Gatsby and almost everyone was decked out in feathers, pearls, jewels and tuxedos. Before the ceremony started, there were over 13 restaurant tasting stations. Every booth had little bite-sized samples of their best dishes. It was amazing. My favorite was Cloud 9 Cupcakes. Not just because every tooth in my mouth is a sweet tooth, but because I LOVED their logo.
The ceremony itself was a lot of fun and filled with fantastic work and intersting personalities. After it was finished, everyone who attended got their very own “swag bag”. It’s really rewarding to see your hard work acknowledged by people in the community who you admire. And now we have a trophy to show for it! We’ll definetily be back next year, and maybe our award shelf will have some new additions!
