To access the Judges Portal, you will need to use the credentials sent to you by AAF National.
Judging may be hosted virtually. Please check with your local Chapter to verify requirements of physical entries. Requirement of physical entry submissions is at the discretion of the local AAF Chapter.
In some categories, entrants are allowed and/or required to upload additional digital examples of an entry. This is intended to provide more appropriate content for the judges, should a virtual judging solution be necessary. For most categories, there has been no change from prior competition years.
Please carefully follow all online submission guidelines provided within the entry system, in order to ensure that your work is properly represented during all three tiers of the American Advertising Awards competition.
Thanks for Competing in the American Advertising Awards
This is the largest industry creativity competition in the nation. Winners at the local level move on to compete at the District 4 competition, and winners at the District competition move on to National to compete against the best of the best.

It Pays to be a Member
The price for non-members is double what it is for AAF members. So if you join today you’ll not only save, but you’ll support the local chapter. Our annualized memberships run from June-May. Once you're a member, you'll receive a reminder to renew your membership each May.
We Are Not Accepting Physical Entries
The National AAF organization will be conducting judging remotely this year, as will our local chapter. Please do not plan to submit physical entries to this year's competition.
If you are submitting an inherently physical entry (e.g. a sales kit, a mailing or a display), in addition to submitting a full PDF of the entire piece, consider taking photographs or video that showcase the production quality and construction of your entry.
Our deadline for regular entries is January 10, 2024. All entries completed after 11:59pm on January 10, 2024 will be considered late and can be entered with an additional $50 late fee (per entry) through 11:59pm on Monday, January 15, 2024. No entries will be accepted after this time and date.
