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.

Will there be physical entries this year?

Nope, all entries for the AAF Orange County 2022-2023 American Advertising Awards will be judged online only, no physical entries will be accepted. You're welcome or we're sorry 😉

That being said, it will be even more important to upload great photos and videos, where allowed. For nearly all entries, you are now able to upload five files/images and a video.

For example, if you are submitted an annual report as your entry, you can submit photos of the interior and exterior of the piece as well as a video highlighting key pieces of the work for the judges to watch. Since these images and videos are replacing the physical entry, take the time to make sure they represent your entry in the best way possible!
