Pro Bono Creative Turns To Gold For Tampa Ad Agency

TAMPA, Fla., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tampa based advertising and marketing firm, Trickey Jennus, spun a pro bono creative project into gold at the 2013 AAF Tampa Bay ADDY Awards, winning a Best of Show, a Best of the Bay, a Gold ADDY and two Silvers.

The three biggest awards came from a project Trickey Jennus developed for the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMoPA). The goal was to help FMoPA create a buzz around their move to a new location. Using some prime real estate — The River Gate Tower at 400 North Tampa Street — and "some of the world's best photography," according to creative director Tom Jennus, the agency wrapped one side of the downtown building in photos and used the teaser line: See What's Developing.

"This award is very significant to our organization for many reasons," said FMoPA's chairman of the board, Doug Bartley. "First, it exemplifies the quality of our board and the in-kind work that organizations like Trickey Jennus bring to our museum. But more importantly, it showcases our museum as an important icon within downtown Tampa's cultural arts district."

The pro bono effort came about through CreateAthon — a not-for-profit organization that recruits advertising agencies to do pro bono work for worthy 501(c)3 organizations. FMoPA was the Judge's Choice winner for the 2011 Tampa Bay Business Journal Nonprofit of the Year, making them one of Trickey Jennus' CreateAthon clients.

Trickey Jennus also earned a Silver ADDY for collateral with the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation 2011 Annual Report, and a Silver for the Tampa Downtown Market color print ad campaign.
