This past Friday everyone from the CNP offices attended the local Addy Awards banquet to see what kind of awards we would walk out with this year. The Addy Awards are conducted by the American Advertising Federation and the local competition is the entry point to their national competition. Awards are given across a multitude of categories from printed newsletters to TV commercials, product packaging to web sites.

Basically, how it works is that we submit our best works from the previous year to the local competition and based on several criteria are awarded a gold award, silver award or nothing. Anything that is awarded a gold at the local level is then sent on to the state competition for the next round. I’m pleased to say that at this year’s competition we had four of our submissions receive gold and they will move on to the next level. They were:
cnp_studio (one gold for the web site, one gold for our logo/stationery/business cards)
SeaWorld Journey to Atlantis
The award on the Kelly Homes site is bittersweet. We’re glad the site did well, but sadly the entire site design as well as the HTML and CSS behind the site were completely copied and used by someone who thought it was OK to do such a thing. Expect to see more on this
in another post here.
