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.

We are excited to see what the Tri-State area has to present in this year's American Advertising Awards. So much talent has been seen in our marketing and advertising industry, and we want to see you get recognized for it! 

No matter if you are a single person business, or a full scale design firm - everyone is on the same playing field in the American Advertising Awards. So what are you waiting for? Enter in your hard work and see your efforts get recognized!
