Long-time Tallahassee video producer Charlie Belvin has been presented the highest honor of the American Advertising Federation â€“ Tallahassee(AAFT), the Silver Medal Award, for 2013.

â€śCharlie was a stellar candidate and is a deserving recipient of this great honor,â€ť said AAFT President Alison Voorhees. â€śHe has accomplished so much during his 25-year career as one of Tallahasseeâ€™s top video producers and advertising executives. He has set a very high bar for creative thinking and execution and is a role model to so many of us in our industry for hard work, integrity and community service.â€ť
