The newly named American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYS, were presented Feb. 21 with Schaefer Advertising Co. capturing the Best of Show award for Word Crop Signs done for Cassco Development Co. to bring attention to the coming Clearfork development in southwest Fort Worth.
The Word Crop Signs are oversized metal words, spelling out Discover, Legacy, Vision and other words that adorn the area of Cassco Development’s planned Clearfork project.


The Best of Show print advertisement was also unusual: Balcom Agency’s work for the Carter Wedding, featuring invitations designed by the bride, Lauren Malbach, for her wedding to Cole Carter.
The Best of Show broadcast award went to Ultralite Films for its work for Resident Alien, The Unspoken Speech Project: Words Alone. In that project citizens of Dallas deliver the speech that President John F. Kennedy planned to make in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. www.ultralitefilms.com/#!blog/c1qyz

The American Advertising Federation conducts the annual American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs. The Fort Worth competition is the first of a three-tier, national competition. At the second tier, Fort Worth winners compete against winners from other local clubs in District 10. District winners then advance to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.

“The new name makes it clear that this competition embraces every aspect of American advertising, and it does it from the local level up to the national level,” said Rene Murphy, AAF-Fort Worth president. “We felt that the ADDY name set a limit on how the competition was perceived, and the market needs to be reminded that our awards program is local, regional and, most importantly, an American advertising competition.”
AAF-Fort Worth held the awards program at Cendera Center on Friday, Feb. 21.
