Do you know someone who has made an impressive contribution to the field of advertising? The E.A. Pete Goldsby Silver Medal Award is the highest personal award presented by the AAF–Baton Rouge. Each year it is presented to the person who has made the greatest overall contribution to the advertising profession in our local area. The Goldsby Award is named for the late E.A. “Pete” Goldsby. Mr. Goldsby was the advertising manager of the State-Times/Morning Advocate and gave most generously of his time and talents to the advertising profession as well as many civic, fraternal and charitable activities. After his death in 1954, the Board of Directors of the Advertising Club of Baton Rouge established the Goldsby Award. Nominations are now open for the 2012 Goldsby Award. The deadline to submit is December 9.
