Vivid Bridge submitted the film, along with other materials, to be considered for this year’s ADDYs. Founded in 1959 ADDY’s is missioned to recognize distinguished creative talent in the art of advertising. The Pensacola ADDY submissions are open to freelancers, agencies, corporate communications, members, and non-members from the Northwest Florida region.

“The decision was made to submit IMS’ brand film because of the cinematic consistency, intentional craftsmanship, and its unique disposition compared to other video production work," commented Benjamin Murphy, Director/Production Manager of Vivid Bridge Studios. “It was so inspiring to hear the same message across the entire workplace. When you have that kind of drive and consistency, it makes telling the story so much easier.”

They evaluate all creative dimensions of the work to measure its quality and from that determine the winners. If selected as a district winner, an opportunity arises for consideration at the national level by the American Advertising Awards.

The IMS Brand Film was awarded one Gold and Silver plaque. In the ADDYs, Gold signifies the highest level of excellence and Silver denotes worthy recognition.
