ST. LOUIS - Rodgers Townsend, St. Louis's largest full-service advertising agency, took home a total of 59 awards at the St. Louis advertising community's ADDY® Awards, by far the most of any agency. The agency won two Best of Show awards and 22 Gold awards, more than double any other agency. The awarded work was across several accounts, including The Hartford, AT&T, Enterprise Holdings, Missouri Baptist Medical Center, Ardent Fishing, Pleats Fine Cleaners, Rung Boutique and Outreach International.

"There's a lot of great work being done in St. Louis for a lot of great clients, so it's especially gratifying to have the breadth of our work recognized." said Tom Townsend, Chief Creative Officer. Of the Gold awards, eight were for the agency's video-rich small business site built for The Hartford. The site has also been recognized as an FWA Site of the Day and a Communication Arts Webpick.

Executive Creative Director Tom Hudder said, "It's good to see what other agencies are doing, and we're looking forward to seeing what happens at the regional ADDYs."
