24 Karat Magic: AAF Awards 2020

Given all the challenges the advertising industry faced in 2020, we were incredibly blessed to be able to continue the work we love. We are so grateful to create work for our clients that all of us here at PushCrankPress are passionate about; then, being able to submit our work to the American Advertising Awards and reflect on this past year was the perfect motivation to continue doing what we love and moving our clients forward.

The American Advertising Awards 

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most represented competition, with a mission to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. An “ADDY” is the name of the award given to recognize those who place either Gold, Silver, or Bronze.

Entering the American Advertising Awards supports the entire advertising industry. This year’s event was entirely virtual. With several professional entries and student entries submitting their best work from various disciplines such as Sales & Marketing, Print Advertising, Out-of-Home & Ambient Media and Online/interactive, to name a few. Judges were then able to evaluate all online submissions of work and rewarded the most creative and well-executed projects. 

We were thankful to participate in this year’s American Advertising Awards, reflect on this past year, and celebrate the resilience of all the creatives in our local community. We received the Best of Show Award, a Judges Choice Award, two Gold American Advertising Awards and two Silver American Advertising Awards.

Wiregrass Museum of Art – Art Elevates the Everyday Campaign
Best of Show Award + Gold American Advertising Award

The Wiregrass Museum of Art promotes its mission to create experiences that bring art and artists together with the Wiregrass community members. While this year had many challenges, the museum continued to find a way to elevate art every day. This campaign was promoted through various media to include t-shirts, customized brochures, social media graphics, GIFs, and filters.   



Dothan Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Airport Multimedia Video Wall 
Judge’s Choice Award + Silver American Advertising Award

Visit Dothan wanted signage at the Dothan Regional Airport welcoming residents home as well as visitors to Dothan. This installation was created to bring awareness to people visiting the Circle City. The wall wrap features hand-drawn animations and displays a large-scale video screen with regularly updated information featuring events and attractions in Dothan, AL.

PushCrankPress Self Promotion Campaign
Gold American Advertising Award

Branded promotional products were designed to pique curiosity about our business. These products included t-shirts, water bottles, stickers, masks, koozies, and custom PushCrankPress note cards that best represent the agency’s unique style, making thank you notes mean that much more.

Wiregrass Museum of Art B20: Wiregrass Biennial Website
Silver American Advertising Award

We teamed up with the Wiregrass Museum of Art to create their first fully digital art exhibition. This juried exhibition features artists from 11 different states in the Southeast. The website gives the user access to all of the pieces in the show, as well as the ability to vote for a people’s choice award that was presented. (wiregrassbiennial.com)
