Jajo Inc. wins best of print at 2009 ADDYs
WICHITA, Kan. (February 25, 2009) — Steve Randa and Shawn Stuckey, managing partners of Jajo Inc., announced that Jajo had another award-winning year at the ADDY® Awards. The American Advertising Federation of Wichita (AAFW) held its annual awards show for advertising creative excellence Wednesday night at the Crown Uptown Professional Dinner Theatre, presenting 24 ADDYs, Print Best of Show and the Club Service Award to Jajo.
Of the 82 entries received by AAFW, seven gold, seven silver and 10 bronze ADDYs were won by Jajo, more than double that of the next-closest competitor.
Jajo garnered Print Best of Show for its client Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. Two Club Service Awards were presented to the entire agency and to its account service director, Jolynn Berk.
“We are truly honored and humbled,” said Randa. “So much effort goes into every project. It takes contribution from our clients, our employees and the many vendors to make first-rate work come together. And we are big believers in recognizing and celebrating quality results.”
Gold ADDY entries are automatically forwarded to the next level of the national competition and will compete against work from agencies in Kansas City, Mo.; St. Louis, Mo.; Lincoln, Neb.; Omaha, Neb.; and Des Moines, Iowa.
Entries were judged based on creativity, originality and creative strategy. The AAFW ADDY Awards competition is sponsored by the AAFW, a member association comprised of advertising and media professionals. Proceeds from the ADDY Awards help support the AAFW’s educational programs, public service projects and proactive government relations efforts.
“The Wichita advertising community looks forward to this night,” said Ashley Bowen Cook, brand director, Greteman Group, and president of AAFW. “It is our opportunity to recognize the accomplishments of the many talented, creative individuals and organizations that we have in Wichita.”
“We understand that in this economic climate, spending is scrutinized on every level,” continued Bowen Cook. “Awards shows are an expense of time and money that many probably think should be set aside, so we sincerely appreciate Jajo’s support.”
