Rockie Awards – The Winners

For those who might have missed the show in April, the Boise Advertising Federation recently published the complete list of winners from this year’s Rockie Awards.

Of the 429 entries, 123 were recognized at various levels – Gold, Silver, or Citation. Gold winners were automatically forwarded to the AAF District 11 competition.

Notables from this year’s show: Drake Cooper won Best of Show for their 18 Summers campaign, Duft Watterson took Gold in 8 of the 16 categories, and Christal Gammill was this year’s recipient of the Idaho Advertising Federation Silver Medal Award.

The complete list of award winners and select samples of winning work can be found on the Boise Advertising Federation’s website.

Rockie Awards – the Aftermath

The 2012 Rockie Awards Show came and went last Saturday evening. Awards were won, jokes were told, merriment was had by all, and as best as we can tell, no one left the Egyptian Theatre with any major injuries. Now the Bullwinkles on the other hand…

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners, and while we don’t yet have the final list of award winners, I expect that it will be posted on the Boise Advertising Federation’s website soon.

And special congratulations go out to Chuck Christopher of Advantage Adverising, winner of this year’s Silver Medal Award, and Neighborhood All-Stars, whose Story Story Night work took home Best of Show.

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.
