MDR Takes Home “Best of Show” and 27 Other Awards

Corpus Christi, TX – (February 22, 2018) The American Advertising Federation recently held its annual American Advertising Awards in Corpus Christi. With almost 200 entries, agencies from the Corpus Christi and Victoria region competed for recognition as the best in the industry. The awards, presented to a sold-out crowd, covered all facets of advertising, ranging from broadcast, print and out-of-home to websites and digital media.

MDR received the coveted “Best of Show” for an Integrated Campaign for the USS LEXINGTON Museum on the Bay. Top honors included two Best of Broadcast Awards for NavyArmy Community Credit Union and Outlets at Corpus Christi Bay; Special Judges’ Award-Creative Radio for Shiner Strawberry Blonde, and Best of Out-of-Home for the USS LEXINGTON. Other awards included eight Gold Addys® for NEC Coop Energy, Charlie’s Place, Bolivar Peninsula, NavyArmy and Shiner Beers.

“Navy Army Community Credit Union has worked with MDR for the last 15 years.  They’re not just our agency, they are a partner and an integral part of our marketing team and strategic growth plan. They bring creativity, professionalism and valuable solutions to every project and we couldn’t be more proud of the work we do together,” says Ashley Smith, Chief Marketing Officer at NavyArmy.

Winners from this competition will go on to represent Texas at the regional level, and from there, go on to compete nationally.

“I think a big part of our success is that we partner with forward-thinking clients, who allow us to push the limits,” says Nancy Vasquez, Account Director at MDR. “They let us have fun and try new things, and it truly becomes a cohesive relationship. That’s when the best work happens.”
