Tinsley wins a “Henry” for Monroe County’s LGBT campaign.

By Dorn Martell

Henry Flagler would be proud and a little shocked if he were at the Governor’s Conference last week in Boca Raton. Tinsley was awarded the prestigious Henry Award for our ongoing LGBT campaign for The Florida Keys & Key West. The Flagler Awards, sponsored by Visit Florida, recognize outstanding tourism marketing and the vision, perseverance, imagination and commitment of the Florida pioneer Henry Flagler. The campaign is a multi media effort and the three ads that won are as follows:

“You’ll be up all night”, “Breakfast with Tiffany” and “Comfort zone”.



Tinsley also won three bronze Flaglers for other aspects of The Florida Keys & Key West advertising campaign.

“It is gratifying to know the TDC’s promotional efforts continue to be recognized as among the best in Florida,” said TDC Director Harold Wheeler. “But more importantly, they continue to produce measurable results in maintaining a sustainable visitor industry for The Florida Keys.”

We are very honored to add another Henry to our large collection and we continue to be grateful to the Monroe County TDC for having the vision and spirit that allows us to do work that is fun and effective.

Tinsley Meets Charlie

By Rick Blitman

The Juggernaut began in March, when Tinsley Advertising took home 37 Awards at the American Advertising Federation of Miami’s 53rd annual Addy Awards. Last night, it culminated in a Charlie…the highest honor given by the 4th District of the American Advertising Federation.

The Charlie Award represents the best work in a variety of categories, and Tinsley was recognized for Best of Television, for our Florida Keys & Key West Campaign.

Great work does not happen without great clients, and we’re fortunate to enjoy a tremendous partnership with the Monroe County TDC, including Director Harold Wheeler, the District Advisory Committees and the Fishing, Diving and Cultural Umbrellas of The Florida Keys & Key West.

On a side note, the Monroe County Tourist Development Council was recognized by the Board of County Commissioners for their great contribution to the success of the Florida Keys as a world class destination. TDC Chair Rita Irwin was kind enough to recognize Tinsley, Newman PR and Fla-keys.com at the presentation in Marathon yesterday. Thanks Rita, the BOCC and AdFed!
