PP+K has been named one of the top three creative agencies in the United States in the Small Agency category of the American Association of Advertising Agencies (AAAA) 2007 O’Toole Awards for Creative Excellence. Taxi Inc. in New York City and Hoffman York in Chicago were the other finalists in the category.
PP+K competed in the Small Agency category as an agency with less than 100 employees, and it is the only agency in its category from the Southeastern U.S. The Brass AAAA Pyramid Award will be presented to PP+K at the AAAA National Management Conference in April.
The AAAA O’Toole Awards for Creative Excellence are the only industry awards that recognize an agency for its entire body of work. Agencies were asked to submit any combination of broadcast and print (including television, radio, interactive, direct mail, magazine, newspaper, outdoor and non-traditional tactics). So far this year, PP+K has won nearly 200 local, regional and national creative awards for its work on behalf of 15 different clients.
“We are proud to be identified as one of the most creative ad agencies in the United States,” said Tom Kenney, PP+K’s Executive Creative Director. “We set out to prove that with the right mix of creativity, talent and experience, an agency based in Tampa could win national accounts and the most highly regarded awards in the industry.” With 30 employees and a heavy-hitting client roster of national, regional and local companies, PP+K, established in 2004, is one of the fastest growing agencies in the Southeast.
