2020 Reno ADDY Awards

The AAF Reno ADDY Awards is an annual advertising event highlighting outstanding work done in Northern Nevada by local agencies, businesses, and organizations. The event is the biggest fundraiser for the AAF Foundation, which has funded over $300,000 in scholarships for students in northern Nevada. 

This year KPS3 developed the creative campaign to help promote the 2020 ADDY Awards, which was a series of videos highlighting some of the great local agency minds in a Bob Ross format

Unfortunately, the 2020 award show, like many events, was canceled due to concerns of COVID-19 in March. However, the winners of the Reno ADDY Awards were made public, and quite a few of our clients were acknowledged. Some of the below work went on to the ADDY Awards regional competition, which placed as well.
