The Seelbach Hilton hotel was abuzz with excitement Friday evening, February 28, as local agencies gathered for the 40th annual Louie Awards Gala—and our Power Creative crew was out en force to celebrate a year’s worth of hard work and creativity.

The Louie awards, affectionately known as “the Louies,” celebrates the Louisville advertising industry’s finest work. Winning a Louie is the first step in the three-tiered American Advertising Awards creative competition, sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, with the competition culminating at the AAF national conference in June.

The evening began with a welcome by our own VP and Chief Visual Officer Dan Dry, who served as Chairman of the 2014 awards.

In total, we took home 48 awards, including 13 Golds and 25 Silvers. It was quite a haul with 185 total awards given.

We are especially proud of the Judges’ Choice award for the “Jeweled Food Illustrations” posters we created for the March of Dimes Greater Kentucky Chapter, in addition to several gold awards for Power Creative’s work on GE Aviation, GE Appliances, Lennox International, Inc., the University of Louisville and one for our own Power Creative digital reel.
