Cue up “We are the Champions” by Queen because we took home 10 Awards of Excellence from the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE) conference last week in Las Vegas! We definitely weren’t the only winners or the champions per say, but we are proud of our accomplishments and happy to be recognized by the IAFE.
The North Dakota State Fair brought home three first place Advertising Awards for its 2011 advertising campaign created by KK Bold. First place awards received were for Color Newspaper Advertisement, Magazine Advertisement and TV Advertisement. Second place advertising awards were for Black and White Newspaper Ad and Poster. Third Place awards were won for Brochure and E-Newsletter. Our advertising agency, KK Bold, created an awesome concept this year which translated into award winning advertisements and promotions.
Additional awards won include a first place award for Promotional Out of Home Advertising for the North Dakota State Fair’s partnership with the Dakota Square Mall and the Fair’s ticketing kiosk. The Fair also took home second place awards for the North Dakota State Fair Tabloid that is created each year with the help of the Minot Daily News and distributed in newspapers state-wide. The final second place award was for the Fair’s quarterly printed newsletters.
It is our hope that you (our community, state and Fairgoers) are as proud of these achievements as we are, after all this is your Fair!
