The Gulf County Tourist Development Council’s Visitor Guide for 2019 received a Gold ADDY and was awarded Best in Show at the annual competition of the American Advertising Federation held March 18. The work was entered by Kerigan Marketing Associates, of Port St. Joe, which led all Panama City agencies with nine awards.

The Gulf County TDC team was a major collaborator in the project providing photography and creative direction. The Kerigan agency handled all graphic design and copywriting. The guide was printed by Solo Printing of Miami.

Additionally, Kerigan received a Gold ADDY and Judge’s Choice Award for the Eye Center of North Florida’s PanOptix Cataract Lens campaign, and a Gold ADDY for the Jackson County, Florida TDC website.

The agency earned Silver ADDY’s in two categories for Enterprise State Community College including their “Mechatronics” program Google Display ads and vehicle graphics for the Commercial Driver’s License program. The Gulf Coast State College Foundation website received a Silver ADDY. Design for lobby window graphics at The Eye Center was awarded a Silver ADDY; Coast2Coast Printing of Port St. Joe completed printing and installation.

“Obviously, people are facing difficult challenges right now,” said Dana Kerigan, “so it’s a sensitive time to celebrate. But, our staff and clients worked very hard to achieve these results and we want to take time to show we care about the good work they are doing.”
