127 Addys for Tampa Agency, Retirement Delayed

I don’t know how much entry fees are at the Tampa ADDYS, but local Tampa agency Pyper Paul & Kenney hauled in 127 ADDYS this year. Someone must’ve sold a boat or two to pay for all those entries, but nevertheless, congrats to the folks there. That’s a sweep and a half.

PP+K’s honors included 63 gold, 55 silver and seven of the 13 Best of the Bay awards, the judges’ prize for copywriting and overall best of show. The work represented 14 different clients.
“What we’re most proud of is the fact that we won awards for fourteen different clients,” said Tom Kenney, executive creative director of the independent Tampa, Fla., shop. “Many times an agency will have a showcase client that they win awards with. We work hard to ensure that every client is a showcase client.”
