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.


Southern Arizona - show us your stuff! 


The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting over 50,000 entries every year in local competitions. Conducted annually by AAF, our local American Advertising Awards is the first of a three-tiered, national competition. Concurrently, across the country, entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the 2nd tier, winners compete against others in one of 15 District competitions. District winners then forward to the 3rd tier, the National competition. 

With over 200 categories covering all aspects of advertising, the  American Advertising Awards competition is the 1st step toward winning a National ADDY Award.
