Louisville ad agency receives multiple nods for Brown-Forman el Jimador Tequila Campaign and Kentucky Travel & Tourism experiential work at 2018 Regional American Advertising Awards


Louisville, KY – April 11, 2018 – Scoppechio, Kentucky’s largest advertising agency and one of the nation’s leading independent firms, was recognized at the regional level competition of the American Advertising Federation (AAF) ADDY Awards for creative work executed on behalf of Brown-Forman’s el Jimador Tequila and Kentucky Travel & Tourism (KT&T). Scoppechio’s winning work was evaluated against other top submissions from advertising agencies in the Fifth District of AAF.

After winning Best of Show and additional honors at Louisville’s ADDY Awards in February, the agency’s work qualified to advance to the district level of competition, where it competed with other agencies from throughout the region.

The Louisville agency took home three awards, including a top gold distinction for video content work done for el Jimador’s “World’s Largest Day of The Dead Toast” ad campaign, an additional silver distinction for the same el Jimador campaign, and a silver placement for KT&T’s experiential MegaViewer campaign which was featured in major markets across the country.

“It’s always our goal that our best work is done on behalf of our clients and in support of their growth”, said Stephen Childress, Chief Creative Officer at Scoppechio. “So this kind of recognition is certainly gratifying.”

Scoppechio’s work for Brown-Forman’s el Jimador Tequila and KT&T will now advance to compete in the national AAF competition. Winners will be announced in June at the AAF-National annual Admerica conference taking place in Chicago.
