entry tips

What is the American Advertising Awards (AAAwards)?

The American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs, is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising done during the previous year.

AAF Charlotte supports this competition by hosting a panel of national judges to evaluate each creative entry on an individual basis against criteria pre-determined by the National organization. Winners will be selected by the judges and given a Gold or Silver award. The trophy awards will be handed out at a Gala on February 28 of 2019, location soon to come. An email will be sent to your listed contact information stating if you won an award before the event, giving you enough time to make plans to attend the ceremony and celebrate.

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