STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY LIZ LYONS

Guests gathered at Relix for the American Advertising Federation Knoxville’s annual awards event--with a “wigs” theme-- spotlighting local Knoxville advertising support community super stars. The Big Wig Awards Gala recognized the “unsung heroes” of advertising – printers, photographers, coders, digital analysts, support and other behind-the-scenes professionals. The American Advertising Federation is the nation’s oldest national advertising trade association and represents all facets of the advertising industry. Its mission is to look for ways to positively promote the profession, especially to students who may consider advertising and related fields as a career. Award winners this year were Nicole Maestri and Hannah Legoski.
