And in the end…

Another Rockie Awards show is in the books.

There was food. And drinks. And revelry.

Oh, and awards were handed out, of course. Our friend and occasional contributor Don Day live tweeted some of them:

Drake Cooper took home Best of Show for their Don’t Fail Idaho work on behalf of the J.A. & Kathryn Albertson Foundation.

Art Gregory was recognized with the Silver Medal Award.

Although he was on vacation in Tanzania when it happened, a collective toast was raised to Bill Drake for his lifetime of work in this crazy business we call advertising, and he received a lifetime membership to the Boise Advertising Federation.

All in all, it was a solid show at an outstanding venue. A hearty ‘well done’ to everyone who helped put on the show.

And the show got started with this fantastic piece of work from John Eames and the folks at North by Northwest:
