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:

Congratulations Chuck.

Friday Find: 1994 Rockies Intro

We came across this classic during a recent stroll through YouTube, produced by North by Northwest for the 1994 Rockie Awards.

From the video’s description:

In 1994, the Idaho Ad Federation asked vendors to produce openings for that year’s Rockies Show. North By Northwest chose “Newspaper”. The piece was shot in one night and was Jeff Noble’s first “day” on the job. It won for Best Intro.
