Central States Media recently received 5 American Advertising Awards (ADDY’s) for its work with a number of partners. Silver Awards were presented to Central States Media for the design and development of websites for Gailey Eye Clinic, Peoria Country Club, and IT360, and for Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery’s radio campaign. Central States Media also received a Gold Award for the design and development of its own website, centralstatesmedia.com. This award, and their 4 Silver Awards, will be submitted to the district competition to compete for national recognition.
“Helping our clients succeed first has been and always will be our approach. When one of our clients wins an award, it’s always a joy to see their reaction,” says Ann Johnston, President, Central States Media. “Great work is about a combination of different components: wonderful partners, fresh ideas, exceptional execution and an outstanding team.”
Sponsored by the Peoria Ad Club, the local awards recognize creative excellence in advertising and design of promotional materials. The awards were announced during the annual American Advertising Awards Gala held February 11, 2016 at the PAR A DICE Hotel in East Peoria.
Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. The local American Advertising Awards is the first of a three-tiered national competition. Concurrently across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of 14 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national American Advertising Awards competition.
