No Physical "Take In / Drop-Off" for entries

ALL ENTRIES ARE TO BE SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY ON THIS SITE

This is because the District 3 and National competitions are both only accpeting digital images/links/files of competition creative for review for an "Addy Award" so requiring "physical" copies for the local competitions would only have usage at this level of the competition. You are welcomed to mail a "physical" copy of creative for the local competition if you believe it's critical to judging of your work but that will only be reviewed for the local competition. If you win and are eligble to move to the Region or National level, only your digital image/link/or file will be forwarded. 

If any questions, please call Mark Bradley at 757-717-2373 or email: Mark.Bradley@coxmedia.com
