Rapid City-based marketing and communications firm Jackalope earned six American Advertising Awards® at the 2015 AAF-District 8 Regional Competition in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for work created on behalf of Black Hills Ammunition and Jackalope. The wins mark the sixth consecutive year that the firm has represented AAF-Black Hills and the greater Black Hills advertising community at the regional level. AAF-District 8 is comprised of local AAF affiliated organizations from South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Jackalope was the only agency outside of Minneapolis to be awarded gold. In fact, the firm’s identity program earned the second highest marks in the entire professional body of work behind BBDO Minneapolis best of show entry, Driven by Bacon.

With over 60,000 annual entries, the American Advertising Awards® are the world’s largest and arguably toughest advertising competition. Each year the competition begins at the local level with 210 AAF clubs across the country. Entries must first be submitted in a local competition to be eligible for regional and national competitions. Local winners advance to one of 14 regional district competitions and District winners advance to the national finals. The National American Advertising Awards® are held in conjunction with the AAF National Conference; June 10-13, 2015, in Las Vegas, NV.

Winning advertisers featured in the 2015 AAF District 8 ADDYs competition included Colle + McVoy, BBDO Minneapolis, Target, Olson, and Sioux Falls agencies Fresh Produce and Media One.

Out here, freedom isn’t a state of mind.

It’s land so vast and open and rugged, it makes

everything it touches wild.

It brought us here, this land. Called us.

To witness the arc of the earth.

The grass that stretches farther than any eye will ever see.

And the sky, always the sky, bigger than anything that

ever was or ever will be.

But for those of us who came here, we didn’t come to

see how small we really are.

We came to see just how big we can become.

The Black Hills of South Dakota.

The place that made the people, who make the best ammo on earth.

Jackalope is an advertising agency. It is also a mythical animal that rewired the laws of nature to create something the world never even knew it needed. The truth lies somewhere in between. We’re an ad agency that doesn’t look, act or think like an ad agency. We work with people whose companies we believe in. And our job is to gather up whatever weird and wonderful tools we can find and convince the world to believe in those companies like we do.
