This past Saturday was a windfall for us at the Nashville Addy Awards, picking up five awards (one best-of-category, three golds, and one silver) in four separate categories.

We won a gold in the Packaging Campaign category for Hog Heaven's BBQ Fight Club sauce bottles, as well as a silver for the BBQ Fight Club promo posters.
We also won a gold in the Self-Promotion category for our 2011 Art & Soul of America Calendar. This was an especially taxing project for us, so this was a nice vindication of the team's efforts.
The big win for us last night though was both the gold and the 'Best-of-Category' awards being given to Joel on stage in the special Flood Relief category. The awards were given for the two Spirit of Nashville flood relief posters he designed, in conjunction with donations from Athens Paper and McQuiddy Printing, to help raise money for flood relief. (Over $32,000 was raised last year!)
Below are some pics, mostly of us mugging, from the event.
