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.

The American Advertising Awards, home of the ADDY® Award, is one of the industry's largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 30,000 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.

Welcome to the Ad Club of Northeast Louisiana's American Advertising Awards Entry Gateway for the 2021 American Advertising Awards. The 56th Annual American Advertising Awards event will be held on February 24th, 2022.

Remember, you don't have to be a member of the Ad Club of NELA to enter! Almost any creative work you designed or produced in 2021 is eligible to enter! This includes collateral materials, t-shirt designs, banners, websites, signage, social media campaigns, videos, posters and more! Winning an ADDY is a recognition of outstanding work in the industry by your peers. ADDY awards go a long way when seeking new clients and business. And they are a great addition to that resume.

We encourage all advertisers and creatives to take this opportunity to have your work recognized and celebrated at our best gala yet!
