We are exceptionally proud of this award,” said Advertus Media Inc. President Adam Wright. “We are in the business of creating dynamic advertising for our clients. However when you win an award for designing something for your own company, it’s equally gratifying.” Wright added. “I guess the cobbler’s kids can have their own shoes too” Wright quipped.

The competition, held by the Advertising Club of Western MA, was the third year that the club has participated in the ADDY® Award Competition, the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition in the country.

The AAF, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the country’s leading trade association for the advertising industry, and its ADDY Awards recognize creative excellence in advertising on a three-tier basis. The first competition is conducted at the local level, and at the second tier, winners of the local competition compete against other winners in one of 14 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY Awards competition, where they compete for gold and silver awards.
