The American Advertising Awards, home of the ADDY® Award, is one of the industry's largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 35,000 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.

The American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs, is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising done during the previous year.

AAF Charlotte supports this competition by hosting a panel of national judges to evaluate each creative entry on an individual basis against criteria pre-determined by the National organization. Winners will be selected by the judges and given a Gold or Silver award. The trophy awards will be handed out at a Gala on February 27 of 2020, at The Terrace at Cedar Hill. An email will be sent to your listed contact information stating if you won an award before the event, giving you enough time to make plans to attend the ceremony and celebrate.
