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.

Each year, members of American Advertising Federation – Amarillo (AAF-Amarillo), work hard to organize the American Advertising Awards with a mission to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

The 2023 American Advertising Awards will be on Friday, February 24, 2023 at Reed Beverage at 6:30 p.m. Visit aafamarillo.org for more information. 

The American Advertising Awards, hosted by AAF-Amarillo, is the finest of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants compete to win an ADDY Awards moving them into the second tier, where the local winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.

A GOLD American Advertising Award is recognition of the highest level of creative excellence and is judged to be superior to all other entries in the category. Entries that are also considered outstanding and worthy of recognition receive a SILVER American Advertising Award. The number of awards given in each category is determined by the judges, based on the relative quality of work in that category.

Entering the American Advertising Awards supports the entire advertising industry, because the AAF and its local and district affiliates use the proceeds to enhance advertising through programs such as public service, internships, advocacy groups, advertising education and consumer awareness.
