Epicosity Garners 10 Addy Awards, SDAF Creative Legacy Award

Eric Sivertsen


The Epicosity team celebrated some exciting victories Friday night at the 2017 South Dakota Advertising Federation (SDAF) Addy Awards, including 10 trophies for exciting client work throughout the year and our own creative director Scott Ostman picking up the Creative Legacy Award for his incredible career achievements.

The Annual South Dakota Addys are the state-level step of a national competition conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF). It is considered the industry’s largest and most representative competition for creative excellence.


Scott was invited on stage to accept his award, where he got a chance to thank the many people he was honored to work with and learn from through the years (and of course some trademark wit to boot).

Check out the video played for Scott at the event below:

In addition to the awards earned by the agency, one of our own team members, digital strategist Ruth Sturm, performed and co-emceed the event as part of her theatre group, The Good Night Theatre Collective. We're so proud of the accomplishments of the team - here is some of the work that was recognized:
