Tinsley Wins at The Flagler Awards, Again!

No, we didn’t win Best in Costume Design, but we did bring home some nice awards from this year’s 2023 Annual Governor’s Conference on Tourism on September 6th in Orlando, Florida.

Tinsley won top honors (Henrys) for our Los Angeles Outdoor Campaign, The Florida Keys & Key West Print Campaign and our Film Commission Look Book. Tinsley was also honored with a Silver for our Florida Keys Fishing Campaign.

Competing against some of the largest Destination Marketing Organizations in the state of Florida, our submissions placed in the Print, Out-of-Home, Promotional Trade, and Niche Marketing categories and showcased the broad range of advertising we create for The Florida Keys & Key West.

The Visit Florida Flagler Awards recognize the Best in Tourism Marketing, and The Florida Keys & Key West has consistently dominated the field. No destination has received more honors from this organization since its inception.

Tinsley Full-Service Advertising is in Coconut Grove, Florida and has been the Agency of Record for The Florida Keys & Key West since 1986. No agency has won more Flagler awards than Tinsley and we take great pride in our partnership with The Florida Keys & Key West.

How to make the Season of Giving last all year long.


At Tinsley Advertising, we want the spirit of giving to last all year long. So, in 2022, we helped Rainforest Flow in their mission to bring clean water and sanitation systems to even
more villages in the Peruvian Rainforest. We continued our support of Coral Restoration Foundation as they raised and restored over 34,000 square meters of living coral to bring life back to our reefs. And we helped Miami Music Project bring musical education and performance to kids in Miami’s most underserved communities.

This Holiday season, please join us in supporting these causes
or any charitable organization that touches your heart, so we can make the Season of Giving last all year long.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Tinsley Advertising.

We live in an interconnected world. The more we learned about the role that coral reef ecosystems played in the overall health of our planet we knew we had to get involved. Tinsley and Coral Restoration Foundation™ have worked together for several years raising awareness about the threats that coral reefs are facing, not only in The Florida Keys, but around the world. This year we are happy to report that not only are the coral communities improving and spawning new coral our fundraising efforts were the most successful in the history of the organization.

We created a series of posts on Facebook and Instagram that lead up to Giving Tuesday. We tracked each post for effectiveness and saw that our videos outperformed our still posts by a considerable margin. All our efforts lead to a strong push to hit that DONATE button on the global day of giving.

Tinsley also created a long-form film that ran on YouTube and was the main sales tool at their annual Gala. Giving Tuesday and the Gala raised more money than any other promotions in the history of the organization.

“Tinsley has been a consistent supporter of Coral Restoration Foundation™ since 2019, lending their advertising savvy to the mission to restore Florida’s Coral Reef. Thanks to their donated expertise, our Giving Tuesday campaign has grown year over year. In 2021, we raised more than twice as much as we raised in 2020, and far exceeding our previous fundraising records for the global day of giving. This success was in no small part due to the extraordinary assets that the Tinsley team put together for us. We are still crunching numbers, but the gala was a huge success – far and away our best one yet. Thank you and Tinsley again for the fantastic video! “We are so grateful and look forward to continuing to build on this wonderful relationship,” said Martha Roeseler, CRF™ Chief Development Officer.

We look forward to the continuing success of Coral Restoration Foundation™ and we believe that giving back defines who we are as a company.
