After months of planning, the 2013 ADDY awards ceremony, which celebrates excellence in advertising, proved to be an exciting night for PRS Guitars and PRS friend and Flying Dog Ale Film Maker, Tim Martin.

Each year, the local Greater Frederick district chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF-GF) honors advertising excellence with prestigious ADDY awards.  This year’s 2013 “Best of Show Award” winner goes to Flying Dog Brewery’s “Support Local Creativity” campaign.

The “Support Local Creativity” campaign featured the stories of several local Maryland companies, including Paul Reed Smith Guitars, in striking black and white cinematography.  A video of Flying Dog’s PRS Guitar ad can be viewed at:
