Hooters Calendar Wins Award (…and I had NO idea!)

A few days ago I received an email of congratulations from a confidante telling me, “Congratulations on your award! Awesome!”

I had no idea what she was talking about, thought it was a mistake and ignored it – until late last night when one of my Facebook friends did the same thing – except she told me specifics. It turns out that I, along with designer Ryan Johnson and creative genius Charlie Honold were recognized with a Bronze ADDY® Award by the Quad Cities Advertising Federation for our work on the Children’s Therapy Center 2010 Hooters Car Show Calendar. The award was presented in February, and the list of all the recipients was published recently in the Quad-City Business Journal.

The calendar was shot last September, as part of the Hooter’s Car Show for Kids – a fundraiser for the Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities.

Aside from some phone calls and emails, I worked largely independent of Charlie and Ryan on this project. The result was a very creative vintage-themed calendar using the photos I’d shot. The honor was a surprise to me as I had no idea it was even entered for any award. But the recognition by judges was greatly appreciated!

On that note, have a wonderful Easter weekend!
