Award-winning weekend revelry. / February 20, 2018

This weekend marked the annual celebration of our collective advertising efforts. The Adventure team spent the night reveling at the annual American Advertising Awards, a fun-filled event where we reflect on and celebrate the work we do for our amazing clients. Our team received 26 total awards, including the top honor of Best of Show for the 10th time in the past 11 years.

Adventure also took home all three Judge’s Choice Awards for work done for the Minnesota Zoo, Ocean Kayak and St. Cloud-based GREAT Theatre. The crew also went home with 9 Gold ADDYs and 13 Silver ADDYs, a prize earned for nearly every entry we submitted.

And for as much as the rest of the year has us hustling and bustling, it’s genuinely a labor of love: love of the process, love of collaboration and love for the work and impact it makes for our clients. So when we get to finally celebrate that daily hustle with some major accolades, all the hard work becomes that much sweeter.

The full list of entries and their respective honors are below, along with links to view videos and longer blog posts about many of our award-winning projects. Keep an eye out for more killer creative in the coming months – and cheers to another year!
