O'SHAUGHNESSY JUDGES JOPLIN AMERICAN ADVERTISING AWARDS COMPETITION

Springboard Creative’s Brendan O’Shaughnessy joined judges James Keltner (KA Advertising) and Aaron Carter (myMediacom) in judging the American Advertising Awards for the AAF-Joplin. With the help of volunteers and the hospitality of the Joplin Globe, nearly 200 professional and student pieces were evaluated and scored.

 

Brendan is no stranger to the judging process — although this was his first judging experience. He routinely volunteers his time for judging weekends through the AAF-KC.

 

The student entries included pieces that Brendan described as “some of the best student work I’ve seen.” One student entry made Brendan rethink the expectations he had for students. “One thing is for sure, many of these student entries will guarantee employment post-graduation.”

 

The professional work was also high caliber and defied the connotations of small cities not producing competitive work for the larger national design scene.
