Kalman & Pabst Strikes Gold at 2019 ADDY Awards Ceremony

Stopping by for a visit, guests may notice that the KP studio is toting a little more “sparkle” these days. That’s because KP Photo received three ADDY Awards at local judging from the American Advertising Federation (AAF). And an honor it was!

Every year, the American Advertising Federation recognizes agencies and creative partners on local, district and national levels, honoring top talent in advertising with awards. This year, over 300 attendees representing agencies, photography studios, video production companies and more gathered at the Music Box Supper Club, celebratory drinks in hand to raise a glass to the winners.

KP was incredibly proud to scoop up one Gold and two Silver Awards across multiple categories:


KP Photo Food & Beverage Video Reel (Cross Platform, Advertising Industry Self-Promotion)

KP Photo in collaboration with Dan LaGuardia for videography and video editing.


Edible Cleveland, Fall “In Season” (Sales & Marketing, Publication Design Editorial Spread)



2018 Holiday Card (Sales & Marketing, Advertising Industry Self-Promotion Direct Marketing & Specialty Advertising)

Our Gold and Silver ADDYs will advance to the district judging in March and (fingers crossed) to Nationals to compete among thousands of entrants this summer!

We are incredibly thankful for the long-term relationships with our clients. Because of these collaborations and combined talents, Kalman & Pabst produces award-winning work year after year. We are honored to be recognized among the extremely talented humans that shape Cleveland’s creative industry. Congratulations to all of the winners at the 2019 ADDY Awards!
