The Gold Standard
2017-2018 American Advertising Awards (ADDY Awards)
Sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, the American Advertising Awards, also known as the ADDY Awards, honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. It is the largest creative awards competition in the advertising industry, attracting over 40,000 entries combined every year. This competition is a three-tier national competition, and submitting locally to AAF Tallahassee is the first step. If you win locally, you will move on to the second tier, Districts. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage. Because this is the only three-tiered competition in Advertising, an ADDY® is widely renowned as the most difficult advertising award to earn.
