Addy Awards 2019

Taking Home Our 250th HSMAI Adrian Award at NYC Ceremony


Paradise Market’s Best Print Advertising at Tampa Bay’s American Advertising Awards Gala

Paradise Advertising & Marketing took home the prestigious Best of the Bay Print award for its “This Isn’t Ordinary” campaign for Visit Savannah at the 2019 Tampa Bay American Advertising Awards Gala on February 21, 2019. The American Advertising Awards, known as the ADDYs, is the ad industry’s largest competition.

“We couldn’t be more excited to receive this award,” said Tom Merrick, VP and Chief Creative Officer at Paradise. “Our client challenged us to convey the true soul of Savannah, and the result was a very unique tourism campaign. To have it singled out as some of the best work done in a market as creative and competitive as Tampa Bay is truly an honor, and one that the entire Paradise team is proud of.”

Last night’s ADDY wins mark the second time since 2017 that Paradise took home some of the competition’s top awards. The agency consistently receives local, regional and national recognition from the AAF and other leading organizations such as HSMAI and Hermes Creative Awards for its innovative creative and strategic approaches.

“It’s always wonderful to be recognized as a leader in the creative industry, but having this honor bestowed on us by our peers is even better,” said Barbara Karasek, CEO and Co-owner of Paradise Advertising & Marketing. “I am extremely proud of the team here at Paradise, and of the outstanding work they produce for every client and every campaign.”
