Adams & Knight awarded top three honors at Advertising Club of Connecticut Awards Show
For the second consecutive year, Adams & Knight was honored with the coveted Best of Show distinction at the annual Advertising Club of Connecticut Awards Show held Wednesday night at Infinity Music Hall & Bistro in Hartford. The agency also received the Gold Pen and Gold Brush, the top honors for copywriting and art direction, respectively.
Adams & Knight took home Best of Show and the Gold Brush for its tintype poster series for 179 Pictures. The series paid homage to the Collinsville production studio’s specialty, 1850’s-style photography. The agency’s campaign for Traprock, a grueling 50K Ultra Marathon through the woods of Connecticut, won the Gold Pen.
“It certainly feels good to get these awards, especially in a year when the judges had a renewed focus on creative,” said agency Principal and CMO Bill Knight. “But what truly matters is that these campaigns scored meaningful results for our clients and helped them reach their marketing goals. Whether we’re helping them rebrand their companies, develop a new web presence or reach targets through social media, we focus on strategies that can help them stand out from their competition.”
In total, the agency won 31 awards — including eight Gold — for an array of healthcare, financial services, travel/leisure and nonprofit clients, from local organizations to national leaders, including, Hartford HealthCare, Hospital of Central Connecticut, Connecticut Sun, Cargill, HB Nitkin Group, Happiness Lab and the Hartford Gay & Lesbian Health Collective.
The accolades spanned the agency’s work in diverse marketing and advertising disciplines and mediums, including integrated marketing campaigns, print, TV, radio and out-of-home.
Last year, Adams & Knight took home Best of Show for the Connecticut Office of Tourism’s Connecticut still revolutionary integrated campaign.
