District 3 American Advertising Awards Results Are In!

Judging for the District 3 American Advertising Awards is complete, with Clean Inc. of Raleigh taking the Best of Show honors for their Boone 2018 Campaign.

Over a busy weekend at the Cognito Forms office in Columbia, SC, judges evaluated more than 250 professional and student entries from the Carolinas and Virginia. Each entry had previously received a local ADDY award, earning it the right to be part of this level of the competition.

Winners will now advance to compete on the national stage in the third and final level of the competition. The best of the best will then be recognized at the national American Advertising Awards gala June 8 in Hollywood, FL, as part of the AAFs annual Admerica conference.

Congratulations to our District 3 American Advertising Award Winners:
