The 2016 AAF Lexington American Advertising Awards—fondly known as the ADDYs—were a celebration of the impressive creative spirit that drives Lexington and Central Kentucky. This year’s big Best of Show award went to Braley Design for book design of Jock McDonald’s The Woven Perspective.

Ralph Gabbard Award to Cornett for Lane’s End 2015 TV Spot
Public Service Award to Courage Media for Sunrise Children’s Services—Sunrise Found Aaron

Distinguished Member Award to David Caldwell, Principal, Balance Creative

We’d also like to announce that AAF Lexington won an award at AAF Nationals in California last week! We were recognized for achieving the largest increase in AAF Student entries after having one last year. This is a huge accomplishment and a testament to our dedication to our students.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to everyone who participated. We can’t wait to see what everyone’s cooking up for next year’s ADDY Awards!
