Payton Brands Earns American Advertising Awards “2022 Best of Public Service” Recognition
Agency Takes Four Gold, Three Silver ADDY Awards® for Creative Excellence in Advertising

Fort Myers, FL, February 21, 2022 — Payton Brands, a full-service branding and advertising agency based in Fort Myers, was honored recently at the 2022 American Advertising Awards with 7 ADDY awards for excellence in advertising. The awards were announced on Saturday, February 19th at the American Advertising Awards gala hosted by American Advertising Federation-Southwest Florida.

ADDY acclaim includes the “2022 Best of Public Service” award for a powerful rallying-cry video “We’ve Had Enough” done on behalf of Bridge To A Cure Foundation. “We’ve Had Enough” describes the unacceptable lack of progress toward childhood cancer cures and the Foundation’s plan to accelerate progress. The firm also took Gold ADDY Awards for “We’ve Had Enough” copywriting and the Foundation’s 2020 Annual Report, “Unite Transform Cure.”

“Savor Our Differences,” an autism public awareness campaign developed by Payton Brands for Family Initiative, received a Gold ADDY for its unique “Autism-Spices” Art Direction along with Silver ADDY recognition in the integrated consumer campaign, :30 local television spot, and outdoor advertising categories.

“That we can use our advertising expertise to help good people do great things for our community and across the country is an amazing privilege for which we are grateful,” explained Payton Brands principal Wendy Payton. “The 2022 ADDY awards and Best of Public Service recognition from respected judges serves to inspire us even more to make a difference — whether in business success for our clients or the lives of those we impact.”

Payton Brands’ ADDY-winning work moves on to the American Advertising Awards District 4 Competition, which includes entries from across Florida and the Caribbean Islands. Winners will be announced at the American Advertising Awards District 4 Gala on April 23rd in Orlando, Florida.
