The AAAwards, formerly the ADDYs, is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. The mission of the Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising done during the previous year. Winners were selected by the judges and given a Gold or Silver award. The trophy awards were handed out at a Gala on February 28 of 2019, at the Terrace at Cedar Hill.

This was the most exciting AAF Charlotte event of the year where the whole of the Charlotte advertising community came together to support the work of both professionals and students.

THE JUDGES

On Jan 12th, the Charlotte AAF invited three professional experts in their field to join us in our Queen city to judge the work entered into the 2018 AAAwards.

  • Kelly Farquhar from Dallas, TX. Group Creative Director with Propac.

  • Leila Singleton from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Print Specialist.

  • Mary Knight from Seattle, WA. Creative Director and Copywriter with Hydrogen.

The judging was done collaboratively, against National criteria and with our Regional market in mind. In addition to the entries that receive Silver and Gold honors, Special Awards were also selected from this year’s entry pool to highlight unique work that the Judges found appropriate.
