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.

Welcome to AAF Tuscaloosa's 50th Anniversary American Advertising Awards!

It's time to be awarded for your hard work. You know those creative masterpieces you worked on painstakingly throughout the year? Now is the time to let democracy have it's day and vote on the best of the best!

Submissions are due January 11, 2019.

All work submitted must have been completed in 2018.


Okay, I've completed my online entry and paid...now what? 

  1. Print out & sign the invoice/manifest.
  2. For each entry, you will print out the entry form (the one with the number at the top) to include with your physical entry in a clear presentation folder/bag. Your entry number must be visible. For each item in an entry, you need to attach one of the little rectangular tags (found at the bottom of the entry form) to the back. This means if you are submitting a campaign with multiple items, every item must be marked with this label (please use "1 of 2", "2 of 2", etc). You may have to print additional copies of the entry form for this. 

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
