The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation recently received three Gold ADDY Awards and two special judges awards from the Oklahoma Chapter of the American Advertising Federation.
OMRF took top honors for best poster and event invitation for the 2022 “241” (Two Events For One Great Cause) benefit materials. The pieces include an illustration of 14-time Grammy Award-winner Emmylou Harris, who performed at 241 in October, surrounded by Oklahoma wildflowers.
OMRF’s 2021 Annual Report also received a Gold ADDY. The report, celebrating OMRF’s 75th anniversary, featured 75 things that happened the year the foundation turned 75. It was distributed to donors in 2022.
OMRF’s 241 poster and Annual Report received the special judges awards for Best of Illustration and Best of Print, respectively.
Findings, the foundation’s semi-annual magazine, received a silver award in the category of sales promotion product or service, and a Findings feature article also received a silver award in publication design for the Summer/Fall 2022 story, “The Puzzle of Covid and Autoimmunity.”
OMRF’s Public Affairs team, led by Lindsay Thomas, produces its promotional materials and publications in-house. The foundation’s creative director is Jenny Lee.
All three gold-winning entries now advance to the ADDY District 10 competition, which comprises Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. Winners there proceed to the group’s national competition.
