NOISE dominates Southwest Florida ADDY Awards
NOISE, a 600-plus award winning, 23-years-smart multi-media branding communications agency with offices in Sanibel and Milwaukee, Wis., dominated the 2009 Advertising Federation of Southwest Florida ADDY Competition, sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, by winning six Gold ADDY Awards, 20 Silver ADDY Awards and a Judges’ Choice ADDY Award (interactive broadcast).
The awards were presented at a ceremony on March 21 in Fort Myers. This is NOISE’s second year as the most-decorated advertising agency of the year, with 46 ADDY awards in 2007. The competition is open to all advertising agencies, public relations firms, communications firms and industry suppliers with offices – or representing clients – in Southwest Florida.
NOISE’s 26 awards, plus Judges’ Choice, are nearly twice the number of the second-highest awarded firm – representing approximately 40 percent of all awards presented, virtually the same percentage of success as last year’s competition. The Judges’ Choice was awarded to NOISE for their work with the Florida Repertory Theatre, a multiple-win client.
Other client successes included ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort, USA3000 Airlines, Florida Weekly, The Core Lutheran Church and self-promotion for NOISE. NOISE also contributed to the awards ceremony this year, pooling their creative brains to produce the 30-minute awards show and 24-page awards book.
“They like us… they really like us,” said John Sprecher, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of NOISE, channeling Sally Fields. “But in all seriousness, our role and our goal is to strive to continue to produce the best work for each of our clients year after year – not to win awards and recognition for NOISE or to be “liked,” but to achieve success for our clients.”
NOISE CEO Milissa Sprecher agreed.
“Awards mean nothing without client success stories to back them up, and that’s what we take our greatest pride in,” she added. “We are honored and privileged to work with a client roster that shares our passion for excellence, quality and success.”
