Due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the American Advertising Awards competition rules, categories and entry procedures for 2022-2023 have been modified to allow for the possibility of remote online judging.

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.

2023 Ad Club Lexington American Advertising Awards.

Maybe it’s been a few years since you’ve submitted a killer campaign or wondrous website for adjudication by our panel of judges.

Maybe you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to burst on the stage with a boldly executed brand identity or a slickly shot video.

Maybe you live for ADDYs. Maybe you’re perpetually vying for the opportunity to post “winner winner chicken dinner” on all your socials.

Whether you’re an advertiser, a designer, or some other creative creature — old guard or new — get in and buckle up, baby. We’re getting ready to throw one helluva REUNION!

Check aaflexington.com for continued updates as we bring the latest on the competition, your judging team, and the gala.


We're Going Digital One Last Time

Entries will be judged digitally for the final time this year. Upload any files that you think will help judges understand your work. It may help to think of submissions as portfolio pieces: show all sides of work, submit photos of the finished piece (not flat art files), and so on.
