The American Advertising Awards, home of the ADDY® Award, is one of the industry's largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 35,000 professional and student entries each year through competitions offered through local AAF clubs. The mission of the American Advertising Awards is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising.

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local Ad Club phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards - recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local ADDY winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. Entry in your local Ad Club competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY.


The holy grail of advertising prowess.

You must choose…but choose wisely.

For as true advertising genius will bring you life…anything else will send you home with no Addy.

Yes, it’s that time of year when all advertising professionals dig out their advertising gems to submit for the chance to be recognized in the District 7 American Advertising Awards.

Maybe you’ve created some killer packaging design. Perhaps you were part of a team that put together an awesome television or radio ad. Or you could have built a reverent website or app.  There are so many more entry categories to choose from, but you’ve got to act quickly. When you’re on the mother of all quests, you’ve got to think fast and act faster.
