An animated commercial created for Diptyque candles by Temerlin Advertising Institute students Anna Rose Corell (’21) and Gaëlle Gachelin (’19) has won a Silver ADDY in the national finals of the 57th annual American Advertising Federation American Advertising Awards competition in the student “animation or special effects” category.

The ad previously won a Silver award in the local Dallas ADDY competition in February and both a Gold award and a Judge’s Choice award in the district-level competition in April.

“I couldn’t be more proud of this dynamic duo and I expect to see great things to come from both,” said Temerlin lecturer Mark Allen.

Corell will be a senior this fall at SMU, and Gachelin, who graduated in December 2019, has just been hired as a full-time art director at The Richards Group in Dallas.

The American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, recognizing and rewarding creative excellence in the art of advertising. This year, more than 30,000 professional and student entries were submitted in local American Advertising Awards competitions. Following successive rounds of judging at the local and district levels, approximately 700 of those entries made it to the national finals. Ultimately, 214 entries, including 56 student entries, were selected for national Gold or Silver awards. The Student American Advertising Awards, sponsored by the American Advertising Federation and National Ad 2, are a sub-category designed especially for college students. Applicants must be enrolled full- or part-time in an accredited U.S. educational institution.
