After a blizzard wiped out the first judging weekend, Springboard Creative’s Kevin Fullerton finally made it to Waterloo, Ia. to judge the AAF-Cedar Valley ADDYs award show.


The show included over 250 entries. Fullerton judged the show with Greg Ahrens of SKAR Advertising in Omaha and Gerry Clemons, a freelance creative director from Chicago.


After judging, the three judges were interviewed for a segment that was shown the night of the ADDY awards. During the interview, Kevin insisted that the illustrator for the Best of Show winner send him a copy of the winning poster –he liked it that much.


“I knew the second I saw it that it would be our Best of Show winner,” Fullerton said. “The winning project blew me away.”


(Note: While Kevin never received a copy of the poster, he now works on a regular basis with that particular illustrator.)
