2010 Rockie Awards Show Roundup

2010 Rockie AwardsFor those who may have missed it, the 2010 Rockie Awards Show was this past Saturday evening.

And for those who attended, everyone can agree that it was one of, if not the best awards shows that the Boise Advertising Federation and Idaho Advertising Federation has ever put on.  A huge congratulations goes out to Jennie Myers and the entire show committee for putting on a memorable event.  If you see any of them in the next couple of weeks, be sure to thank them for everything they put in to it.

A few highlights:

Silver Medal Award Winner Mike Sanders

Dave Cook and Asa Nims with their acoustic duet.

Jason Hamilton ribbing John Drake for his soap opera name and hair.

George Parker presenting Best of Show (and possibly inspiring a new award that may appear on this site at some point in time – stay tuned).

The after-party at the Red Room.

The Knitting Factory, packed to the gills for a sold-out awards show, with some of the most talented people in this business, all dressed to the nines.

And much, much more.

It really was a great night.

To all of the winners — Well Done.  Rather than try to list them all here, I’ll merely point you to the Rockie Awards website, where you can check out all the winners in the 2010 Rockie Awards Show Winners Book.

As I’ve said many times before, I’d put the work that comes out of the state of Idaho, and the talented folks involved in making it happen, up against anyone else in the country.  This year’s winners are yet another reflection of that.

Congratulations to all.
