2017 has gotten off to a great start. Last month the American Advertising Federation – Knoxville chapter transformed the Crowne Plaza into an 80s blast from the past for the 52nd Annual American Advertising Awards, aka the KNOX RADDY’S. For someone that grew up in the 80’s, it was hard not to get excited about dressing up for this event. Here is a picture of my wife and I during the reception before the awards ceremony.
While the dressing up was fun, the main reason for the event was, of course, the awards. I had four entries that ranged from lifestyle photography to go make something graphically appealing. These photos were published in everything from an annual report to advertising campaigns on social media and in print. Below are my four entries for this past year’s work, with three bringing home silver and another bronze.
- Silver — Elements of Advertising: Client – The Spining Group for Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort
- Silver — Elements of Advertising Campaign: Client – University of Tennessee
- Silver — Elements of Advertising Campaign: Client – Dollywood
- Bronze — Elements of Advertising Campaign: Client – The Spining Group for Snow Mountain
I hope you have enjoyed this sample of my advertising photography from last year. Check back for more updates as they happen in 2017.
