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.


  • All three tiers of the competition - local, district, and national - will be judged entirely online.
  • Make sure that the file you upload to the entry site is the best representation of your work. This is what the judges will see when evaluating your entry.
  • This year you can upload additional digital examples of your work to provide more appropriate content for our judges. Pay close attention to the rules, a written or digital (video) summary is required in some categories, such as Integrated Campaigns. To ensure that your work is properly represented, this year you can provide a summary in any category where you feel it's needed to best showcase your entry.
  • Because judging will be done entirely online, please save your digital files using file names that are helpful in describing them. For example, for a social media campaign you might upload files named ABC_Company_Facebook, ABC_Company_Instagram, and ABC_Social_Campaign_Video_Summary.
