Cord Media Company Earns 26 ADDYs, Including 8 Gold Awards

PALM DESERT, Calif., March 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cord Media Company, the West Coast’s premier full-service marketing & advertising agency specializing in casino, resort hotel, real estate and homebuilder clients, recently earned an unprecedented 26 ADDY Awards from the Desert Cities branch of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) at its annual awards dinner held at the ACE Hotel Palm Springs.

Cord Media claimed the evening’s most prestigious honor, Best of Show, for its BIGHORN Penthouse video, which was also named Best of Electronic. The agency won Best of Print honors for Alta Verde Group’s LINEA print campaign and a Judges Award for The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens’ Year of the Cheetah integrated campaign. In total, Cord earned eight Gold ADDYs, 10 Silver and four Bronze Awards.

“The ADDYs are a validation of the hard work and long hours put in by our talented team, in collaboration with our valued clients,” said Jonas Udcoff, Cord Media CEO. “Every year we try to raise the bar a little higher, so it’s very satisfying to be recognized among some of the most talented people in our industry. We’ll pause to celebrate this achievement, and then get back to work.”

ADDYs are bestowed to local entrants for superior creative that aired or was published in the prior year, by a panel of advertising creative executives. On a national level, the AAF represents the true spirit of creative excellence from entrants of all levels from anywhere in the world, acknowledging extraordinary men and women who have made significant contributions to advertising and society, while raising the standards and level of professionalism in the industry.
