The Richmond Show, the Richmond Ad Club’s annual showcase of the best in local advertising and marketing, was held Friday. The contest’s coveted cannonball trophies were awarded for standout ads and campaigns in 2014, determined by a panel of judges. Awards were presented in categories recognizing production, interactives, design and advertising and student work, reported Richmond BizSense.

The top winners were:

– Advertising: The Martin Agency for its “KO2 Gravity” video for BFGoodrich;
– Student: Heather Hudgins of Virginia Commonwealth University for her Spanx for Men print campaign;
– Production: Mondial Creative for its BFGoodrich editorial;
– Design: Elevation for its “Stone Brewing Kit” promotions for the Virginia Economic Development Partnership; and
– Interactive: HeliumStudio for its “Save the Machine” microsite for VibrAlign.
– VCU Brandcenter student Larissa Cole won the Harry Jacobs Scholarship. VCU undergraduate Sarah Burley won the inaugural Barbara Fultz Women in Advertising Scholarship.

The Mike Hughes Ad Person of the Year Award went to Moses Foster, president and CEO of the West Cary Group. The award, named in honor of the late creative director of The Martin Agency, is presented to a local industry leader for outstanding contributions to the community. (Check out separate post on Foster winning the award.)

The theme of this year’s show was The Roaring Addies, a time of “Glamour. Extravagance. Ambition. The Roaring ’20s was the era of flappers and moonshine, jazz and the lost generation (and this year’s event) is bringing back all the glitter and glitz for the 2014 Richmond Show!”
