One thousand, three hundred and thirty-four entries were judged in the competition including Fortune 500 companies like Disney, Royal Caribbean and McDonald's.

This year was a blockbuster year for the Caribbean Advertising Federation, (CAF). The CAF took home top honors for the 4th District of Florida and the Caribbean, for having the most ADDY entries and sixth largest increase in entries for the entire United States.

"This is an outstanding accomplishment across the Caribbean region. The CAF has gained widespread recognition which not only elevates our organization but focuses national attention on our members," said Renae Quinton, CAF President.

AAF National rewards this accomplishment by providing registration and travel expenses for the CAF President and ADDY Chair to attend the national AAF convention and national ADDY awards presentation in Phoenix, Arizona in June.

This year's success was celebrated enthusiastically by a large showing of Caribbean members at the District Gala in Florida. Trinidadian agency, Ross Advertising attended and took home a Gold for its flawless campaign creation of, The Hoop of Life.

Everything Slight Pepper, won a Charlie Award for Best of Sales Promotion and a Gold ADDY for Single Unite Packaging for 3ZERO Rums by 3ZERO Ltd.

Michelle Rushing, District ADDY Chair said: "Right from the start the 3ZERO Rum bottle design by Everything Slight Pepper stood out with its understated elegance. It was not just about the label, logo and bottle design as individual elements, it was how they organically came together to showcase the product capturing the judges' attention."

1302This is the first time in history a Caribbean agency has won a district Charlie Award.

Trinidadian agency McCann Erickson took home the District's coveted Mosaic Award that recognizes cultural diversity.

Not only were the agencies in the region highly awarded, but the remarkable woman who started the CAF 18 years ago, Terri Brown, CAF ADDY Chair, took home the highest District award, The Jack Phillips Award for ongoing commitment and service to the advertising industry.

"I am honored to receive this award for my life's passion - advertising," commented Brown.
