    The Addy awards, the advertising community’s equivalent of an Oscar, were presented Thursday night in Charlotte.

Wray Ward won 23 Addy awards, the advertising community’s equivalent of an Oscar, Thursday night from the American Advertising Federation/Charlotte.

Other large winners included HMH with nine Addys, MODE and BooneOakley with seven each and Jack Henry & Associates with five.

Agility Recovery won the best of show for its four-color piece “Disaster Recovery Reminder” during the gala held at Centerstage@Noda. In all, there were about 400 entries this year from Charlotte-area agencies. About a third of the winners will move on to regional competition, said awards director Beth Hernandez. MARK WASHBURN
