eNox Media Wins Two Silver 2015 4th District American Advertising Awards

On May 2, 2015, in Orlando, our eNox Media team won two prestigious American Advertising Federation (AAF) Awards (ADDYs) at the district level. The ADDY award ceremony "recognizes the true essence of creative excellence in advertising" and rewards individuals and agencies that exhibit "the highest creative standards" in the advertising industry.

In operation for over fourteen years, this is our first occasion for bringing home an award in District Four which has 21 local federations throughout Florida and the Caribbean and nearly 1,500 members.

We won ADDYs for our design and the advanced Responsive website coding of the EDGE Social Drinkery website, a project that showcases just one of our areas or expertise ... hospitality. Malcolm, Theresa, Nitin, and Fabiola all shared in making it possible to take home Silver ADDYs in both Digital Advertising Consumer Services and the Responsive Website Design categories.

You MUST (insert shameless plug for awesome bar here) to visit EDGE Social Drinkery, the rooftop bar on top of the Epicurean Hotel in Tampa. Living up to its name, it's unlike any other in the Tampa area. They serve unique cocktails designed by Director of Spirits, Dean Hurst and serve savory small plates and cheese boards. You will be impressed by the view and hospitality.

Norwood Smith, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Mainsail Lodging & Development said of our work, "Having a responsive website design that would resonate with customers while clearly identifying our brand was our goal. Clearly, eNox Media delivered in spades!"

Brooke Palmer Kuhl, Public Relations Director for Bern's Steak House added, "The eNox Media team was a natural fit for the EDGE project. Knowing our brands from previous projects, and understanding the innovation we were putting into our cocktail program, they took that inspiration and created a website that outshines the competition. Our website measures up with outlets in New York, Atlanta, and San Francisco. I can't think of a company more deserving of this award. We are thrilled with the result as it sets the bar, both literally and figuratively."

Theresa, our lead designer, said, “Having our work in the same competition with creatives from Disney, Universal Studios, Publix, and so many great designers and marketing experts makes me proud. Being a part of this team is always rewarding, but celebrating our achievements at a fabulous Orlando gala was a great experience.”

Our Creative Director, Malcolm Bowen shared, "Score two for the little guys! We love our work competing at this level. Most of the winning work in our categories had substantial more budget and resources. Being able to provide the quality of creative we have is a true value to our clients. We're honored by their trust and partnership."

There are award ceremonies like this all fourteen districts across the nation, with winners moving on to the National Conference, this year on June 13th in Las Vegas. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. However; if we win … you’ll certainly hear about it. Wish us luck!
