The winners were announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts. With nearly 3,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work from the best small shops, firms, and companies worldwide.
The Barber Shop Marketing creative team, led by David Adkins, is responsible for the innovative creative in the winning categories.
The Davey Awards exclusively honor the “Davids” of creativity, the finest small shops, firms and companies worldwide. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock – the sort of thing small agencies do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids” who derive their strength from big ideas rather than big budgets.

Current membership represents a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms.
