Cameron University students win ADDY Award

Four Cameron University students were rewarded for their work in an advertising class during the recent 48th Annual American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) sponsored by the Oklahoma City Ad Club. Casey Durham and Joe Lee, Cache; Courtney Landoll, Elgin; and Garrett Schaede, Owasso; received a Silver ADDY in the student competition for a television commercial they produced. The commercial was part of a hands-on campaign for Red River Best Chevy Dealers that was undertaken in Dr. Theresa Billiot’s advertising class during the Fall 2013 semester. To view the award-winning spot, go to http://youtu.be/dUPSNLUOpgs.

“These students produced an outstanding commercial for the Red River Best Chevy Dealers, and it is incredibly gratifying to see their hard work rewarded,” says Billiot. “The ‘tomboy’ concept captures the consumer base of the Oklahoma and Texas dealerships that make up the Red River Best Chevy Dealers -   Jim Glover Chevrolet, Wilmes Chevrolet, Herb Easley Chevrolet and Four Star Auto Ranch - and the production value meets the professional standards required to succeed in the competitive world of advertising.”

As a Silver ADDY winner, the spot receives automatic entry into the district ADDY Awards. The ADDY Awards recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising.
