Santa Barbara Airport Marketing Partners Receive Top Industry Awards

The Santa Barbara Airport announced Tuesday that marketing partner BBM&D Strategic Branding has won an American Advertising Award for its design of the airport’s Aviation History brochure.

The American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest award competition with more than 40,000 entries annually. BBM&D’s design won in the American Advertising Federation Coastal California competition for creative excellence.

The SBA’s most recent television commercial, “Easy Come, Easy Go,” was awarded the grand prize in the nationwide competition among all Cox Media markets.

Cox Media director/producer Shawn Forry was also awarded a Silver Addy Award for the commercial.

“We are very happy for Barbara Brown, founder and president of BBM&D, and Shawn Forry, Cox Communications, for being recognized by their peers with such prestigious awards,” said Hazel Johns, acting airport director. “Working with such creative and talented individuals to promote the airport and its services has been a rewarding experience, and we are proud of their accomplishments!”

— Hazel Johns is acting director of the Santa Barbara Airport.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
