Much has been happening behind the scenes, and the Boise Advertising Federation sent out this update earlier today to the public at large about The Rockies.
2020 ROCKIES AWARD SHOW UPDATE An Idaho Advertising Federation event, brought to you by The Boise Advertising Federation.
Thanks for being patient with us as we have carefully deliberated to determine the fate of the 2020 Rockies Award show due to COVID 19. The Rockies as an in-person event will not happen this year due to the sensitivity of social distancing while we work through this. It was a hard decision, but we will make it up to you with a big party the next time we get together.
The good news: Due to the size of our usual gathering and sensitivity in these times of COVID-19, we will instead present the Rockies Award Show as a livestream event. We still want to celebrate the creative spirit of our community by hosting a special livestream on May 16th. You guys worked too hard this past year for us to not do anything to acknowledge what you do best!
Stay tuned for details to watch the show on May 16th! See the winners, see the fun videos, have some drinks… all from the comfort of your living rooms and yoga pants. It’ll be free to watch and we also encourage you join us in donating to the Idaho Food Bank during the show. Watch it by yourself or in your groups no larger than 10, six feet apart. It will still be an amazing time.
Who killed it in 2018? That’s what the Idaho Falls Advertising Federation wants to know. And it’s also why they’ve issued a call for entries for the Gem Awards.
The Gem Awards recognize outstanding creative throughout eastern Idaho, and all Diamond and Star Garnet award-winning work is automatically forwarded for consideration to the Idaho Advertising Federation’s Rockie Awards.
The Silver Medal Award went to Sherie Moody-St. Clair from the Idaho Lottery
Drake Cooper took home Best of Show for their J. A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation work.
Oliver Russell and Scentsy both won at the regional level as well — a Gold regional ADDY for Oliver Russell and a Silver for Scentsy. Oliver Russell’s submission has since been forwarded to the national competition.
