Boost Mobile and iNSPIRE! Take Home Best of Show at the Dallas ADDY Awards

Boost Mobile is proud to announce the recent success in three different

categories for Boost Mobile Hispanic’s work in the advertising awards:

the ADDYs. Created and produced by Boost Mobile’s advertising agency of

record, iNSPIRE!, the wins included awards in the category of Consumer

Services with a Best of Show and Gold award for their spot Overlooked,

and a win in the Television category with a Bronze ADDY for their spot

titled Bop Bag.

The Dallas ADDYs had over 450 entries this year and it was the event

with the highest attendance in the club’s history. The event was held at

the new Omni Hotel in the heart of the city.

“We’ve been extremely happy to create this partnership with iNSPIRE! and

work with them for over three years,” Caralene Robinson, Boost Mobile

Vice-president said. “The Dallas ADDY recognition means the support from

the community for our creative work,” Robinson said.

Boost Mobile has taken home over five local ADDY awards for their work

with iNSPIRE! in the last three years, including Best of Show two out of

three times since 2009 when the brand was launched to the Hispanic


Part of a campaign titled “Leaving Abuses” included Overlooked and

Bop Bag intending to leverage the rich emotional language

Hispanics use to describe their economic struggles and experiences with

wireless companies. The “Leaving Abuses” campaign reflected this angst

and frustration while also providing a refreshing message of empowerment

to inspire consumers to take a stand against abusive practices and make

the switch to Boost Mobile, a different kind of wireless company.

About the ADDYS

was adopted by the American Advertising Federation, a not-for-profit

industry association, as a national competition in 1968.

The ADDY Awards is unique among other advertising creative competitions

in that it is the only competition that includes three levels of

judging: local, regional, and national. Winning an ADDY at each level

qualifies the work to progress to the next higher level.
