If the winners of the 48th annual Memphis American Advertising Awards are any indication, Memphis companies and organizations are in great hands with the local creative talent at advertising, marketing, graphic design and media firms.

The ADDY awards — 95 Gold, 61 Silver and 14 "Best Of" — were handed out on Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Peabody Hotel.

Creative directors from Boston, Las Vegas, and New York judged 675 entries. The judges were so impressed by the quality of work, they created four additional "Best Of" awards, which recognize the top work of the year.

"I've judged creative awards across the country. The quality of work in Memphis is superb," said Mark Naparstek, creative director of R&R Partners in Las Vegas, in a release.

"This has been a transformational year for the Memphis chapter of the American Advertising Federation," said AAF Memphis president Blaine Loyd. "The state of Memphis' creative and design industry is strong. Through engaging luncheons, dynamic speakers and memorable social events, this year of change has culminated with the American Advertising Awards show. We're proud to have elevated this annual event in all aspects."
