February 24, 2016 – FREEPORT, IL – M45 Marketing Services recently won two gold ADDY® Awards from the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) northern Illinois branch. The awards celebration was held February 18 at Prairie Street Brewhouse in Rockford.
Gold award winners Julie Beach and Peggy Drane were honored for their work on a direct mail postcard campaign completed for FHN’s Ob/Gyn team, which introduced the providers and shared details of the group’s broad capabilities. Mindy Becker and Marilyn Smit were also awarded gold for a brochure they produced for Interpro Translation Solutions, a Lisle-based company that delivers world-class language translation services to a global audience.
The ADDYs are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition for excellence and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. The competition begins at the local level with 210 AAF member clubs nationwide, which attract over 40,000 entries. Local winners proceed to 15 regional competitions, and those winners proceed to the national finals.
Selection of the most creative entry in each category is affected by a scoring process in which a panel of judges evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry. A gold ADDY is recognition of the highest level of creative excellence and is judged to be superior to all other entries in the category.
M45 co-owner Joe Vaske is proud of his staff’s accomplishments. “We at M45 produce quality work for our clients all over the world and it is an honor to receive such noteworthy recognition,” he says. “Two gold ADDY Awards are a great way to start off 2016.”
