Cord Media Company Earns 24 Addy Awards

Palm Desert, March 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cord Media Company, the premier full-service agency on the west coast specializing in casino, resort hotel, real estate and homebuilder clients, earned an impressive two dozen ADDY Awards from the American Advertising Federation (AAF) at its annual awards dinner recently held at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs.

Cord Media claimed the event’s highest honor, Best In Show, for its Zoorassic Park campaign for The Living Desert, in addition to a pair of Judges Awards for integrated campaigns for the Riverside County Date Festival and Hollywood Park Casino in Los Angeles. The agency earned four awards (one gold, two silver and one bronze) for its innovative work with casinos spread throughout the country, including Muckleshoot Bingo in Seattle, WA.

“Whether it’s for a TV commercial, responsive website design or integrated campaigns, it’s an honor to be recognized with the most talented people in our industry,” said Jonas Udcoff, CEO of Cord Media. “Winning so many of these awards is very exciting, as it validates both the quality of our clients and the hard work of our talented team.”

ADDYs are bestowed to local entrants for superior creative that aired or was published in the prior year, by a panel of advertising creative executives. On a national level, the AAF represents the true spirit of creative excellence from entrants of all levels from anywhere in the world, acknowledging extraordinary men and women who have made significant contributions to advertising and society, while raising the standards and level of professionalism in the industry.

Cord Media also received a gold ADDY for its own promotional short reel, as well as gold for its BIGHORN sales presentation and Port of Everett’s integrated campaign. Silver ADDYs were awarded for Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital annual gala invitation, The Living Desert’s Guardians of The Living Desert posters, AMS Security’s television commercial and Hard Rock Energy Drink’s integrated campaign.
