Being highly regarded by our peers is always an honor, and it’s even more so when it happens right in our own backyard. We earned 32 honors during the 2012 OC ADDY Awards, handed out in March by the OC Ad Federation, formerly known as the OC Ad Club.
In all, DGWB received five Gold and 11 Silver awards — topping our 2011 output in those top two categories — as well as 16 Bronze awards for our work on behalf of clients DOLE Fresh Fruit, Bard Valley Natural Delights Medjool Dates, Toshiba America Business Solutions, Wienerschnitzel, Star Fine Foods, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and the California Avocado Commission. Also included were awards honoring work done for Taller San Jose, one our pro bono clients.
The OC ADDY Awards recognize the best in local advertising in more than 100 categories, and are the first step in the advertising industry’s largest creative competition, attracting more than 50,000 professional and student entries every year in local ADDY competitions.
All of our Gold awards this year were in the categories of digital marketing — something we’re especially proud of. Our agency was founded 24 years ago, before there was even such a thing as digital marketing. Our achievement in this arena validates that not only are we staying current on how to best connect with consumers, but that we are excelling at it creatively.
Of our 32 awards, eight were for the agency’s work for the California Avocado Commission, six were for Bard Valley Natural Delights Medjool Dates, five were for Wienerschnitzel, four were for DOLE Fresh Fruit, three were for Toshiba America Business Solutions and Taller San Jose, and one each for Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Star Fine Foods and DGWB itself.
