BIG SKY – The marketing team at Big Sky Resort was awarded three American Advertising Awards, or “ADDYs,” by the Montana chapter of the American Advertising Federation. The awards were presented in Great Falls in late February.

Big Sky Resort Multimedia Coordinator Chris Kamman won first place in the Digital Media category for his video previewing the 2012-2013 winter season, which he filmed and edited. The same video was later awarded ‘best in show’ for the night, beating out the other gold advertising winners.

“Chris’s passion and efforts in sharing the Big Sky skiing experience resonate in all his work,” said Big Sky Resort Marketing Director Lyndsey Owens.

Big Sky Resort also won second place for its “Real Mom Heroes” radio campaign. Written and directed by the resort’s brand manager, Glenniss Indreland, produced by SoundLogic Audio with Owens’ assistance, the campaign promoted the spring season pass sale. 


The ADDYs are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 50,000 entries every year in local competitions. The mission is to recognize and reward creative excellence.
