WASHINGTON, DC – April 5, 2013 – Minneapolis-based creative agency Odd Lamps Productions was honored tonight by the American Association of Political Consultants with two Pollie Awards™ for its video work on campaigns for FreedomWorks for America, a Washington, DC-based superPAC. Widely considered the “Oscars of the political world,” the Pollie Awards honor the best work in the political field over the course of the year.
“Our goal this political cycle was to create amazing work for our clients that garnered not just attention or viral status, but also generated real results. We created over 150 ads last year, and we gave every ad our best effort. Being recognized by the AAPC in our first real break-out season was such an honor, but we know that we’re going to have to work even harder to top this year’s work,” said Odd Lamps CEO and Creative Director Michael Wilson.
The Pollie Awards™ (Pollies) are bipartisan awards received annually by the members of the political communication industry who have demonstrated they are the “best of the best”. Winners are selected as the “best of the best” in political communications by a blind jury of their peers known as the “Judges”. Esquire magazine has defined the Pollies as “…the Oscars of political advertising.”
Odd Lamps was honored for Best Independent Expenditure Ad (US Senate) “Laundromat” and for Best Pre-Roll Ad “Carmona the Chameleon.”
