The Brandon Agency Wins Six 2021 American Advertising Federation Awards for Creative Excellence

The Brandon Agency, the most creatively awarded marketing agency in the Southeast, took home six awards last weekend in the 2021 American Advertising Awards Competition conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation – Midlands division.

The Charleston, S.C.-based agency won awards for creative excellence in a broad range of categories including branded content & entertainment, collateral material, poster campaign, and illustration campaign. The American Advertising Awards ranks among the largest annual advertising competitions in the United States.

“Creativity is so integral to the work we do for every client, and it takes on many forms,” said Scott Brandon, CEO of The Brandon Agency. “To be acknowledged for our business-building creative work is an honor we will never take for granted. Especially coming off of this unprecedented year, we want to thank AAF for recognizing some of the standout creative campaigns that continued pushing us forward – to the benefit of not only our clients, but us as an agency.”


The agency won three Gold Awards for the creation of the FIREDISC brand book, Fish Hippie posters, and Tidal Marsh illustrations, the latter of which also won an Illustration Award. Gold Awards recognize creative excellence at the highest level and are deemed superior to all other entries in the category.

The agency also took home two Silver Awards for entries considered outstanding and worthy of recognition. Silver Award recipients from The Brandon Agency included Sawtooth Game Calls’ brand book and two videos for SpiiderGriip.

Sponsored by the Washington, D.C.-based American Advertising Federation, the American Advertising Awards (“ADDYs”) recognize exceptional advertising in print, broadcast, out-of-home, Internet and public service advertising. The program ranks among the industry’s largest creative competitions with over 40,000 entries each year. A panel of judges with the American Advertising Awards used a scoring process to evaluate all creative dimensions of every entry and select the most creative entries in each category.
