Hornsby Brand Design Receives District Addy Gold and Silver

Hornsby Brand Design was honored with two district ADDY® awards at the American Advertising Federation’s 7th District ADDY® competition, a professional juried contest for creative excellence, held in Baton Rouge, LA, on April 14-17, 2011. The awarded work was for Knoxville Area Transit’s TV commercial in cinematography (gold) and its website (silver). (See photos attached.) Hornsby Brand Design was only one of two advertising agencies in Knoxville to garner any honors awarded to this market. More than 800 entries from 29 markets across the South were represented, including those in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Hornsby Brand Design’s Gold Award will move on to the National Awards Competition and Gala to be held in San Diego, CA, June 4, 2011.
Of the award, Chris Hornsby, president of Hornsby Brand Design, said, "I’m very proud of our team on where we’ve come from and where we’re going, especially considering how stiff the competition was."

With over 60,000 entries annually, the ADDY® Awards are the world's largest and arguably toughest advertising competition. The ADDY® Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing the best advertising of all types, sizes and levels from entrants around the globe.
