Staged at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, the event saw a total of 52 Pele Awards handed out, with the winning pieces going on to compete for national ADDY awards later this year.

The “;Outstanding Young Advertising Person of the Year”; was Nicole Bonning of 1013.

The George Arthur Pellegrin minority scholarship was awarded to Ryan Matsumoto, a student at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

The “;AAF District 13 Silver Medal”; was presented to Rick Blangiardi, president and general manager of KGMB-TV.

In the annual Pele Awards, Hendrix Miyasaki Shin Advertising Inc. won a rare “;Complete Campaign”; award for its “;Voice”; advertising campaign for Olelo Community Television.

Maui's Sae Design Inc. won a “;Best of Show for Design”; for its complete campaign for the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, and CP Advertising LLC won “;Best of Show for Advertising”; for its “;Faddah's Car”; TV spot for Mobi PCS.

Students from Honolulu Community College won a “;Special Judges' Award for Design”; for its “;Alone, Judged and Unheard.”;

Kinetic Productions Inc. also won a “;Special Judges' Award for Advertising”; for “;Banana Swirl,”; as “;Best commercial that can only run after 10 p.m.”;

An AAF spokesperson said the work entered in the competition was judged by six mainland judges using national American Advertising Awards guidelines.

The three design judges were Theresa Mesa, Mesa Design House, of Redlands, Calif; Kris Hanson, of Ogilvy & Mather PR in Sacramento, Calif.; and Pat Hansen, of MarketFitz, Inc., in Seattle.
