The cannonballs were rolling at this year’s Richmond Show, the annual awards ceremony of the Advertising Club of Richmond, reports Richmond BizSense, which stated:

“Held Friday evening, (April 7), at The Renaissance downtown, the event presented the club’s coveted cannonball awards to local agencies and studios for standout work in advertising, design, interactive and production. A panel of judges chose from submissions entered in those categories, as well as a student competition.

“The night’s big winners included branding firm Work Labs and motion graphics firm Cream Studio, which won best-in-show awards in the design and production categories, respectively. Work Labs was recognized for its “Bling” posters for motorcycle accessories company Cobra USA, while Cream’s award was for its show-open video for last year’s Richmond Forum.

“The Martin Agency picked up two best-in-show awards: in the advertising category for its “Be Better at Credit” campaign for credit company Experian, and in the interactive category for its “Delete to Feed” campaign for Land O’Lakes and Feeding America.

“The VCU Brandcenter won the top honor in the student competition for a submission titled “Tetra Integrated.”

“The Mike Hughes Ad Person of the Year award was presented to Scott Sherman, associate professor and advertising sequence coordinator at VCU’s Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture.”
