Attracting nearly 40,000 professional entries each year nationwide, the American Advertising Awards is among the world’s largest and most comprehensive advertising competitions. The ADDY’s® originated here in Florida in 1960 and became a three-tiered National competition in 1968.
Sponsored by the AAF, the awards honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. Each fall, the competition begins with contests in the nation’s 200+ AAF member clubs, where entries must be submitted and judged to be eligible for the ADDY® process. Local winners proceed to 15 regional competitions, and those winners, to the national finals.
Every year’s winners demonstrate the uniqueness of the ADDY® Awards because their work has not only received national honors but has been recognized at local and regional levels as well.
Proceeds from the ADDY® Awards program on all levels of competition go back into the industry through the work of the AAF and its members, especially in the areas of advertising education and public service advertising.
With more than 100 categories covering all aspects of advertising, the AAF Greater Fort Lauderdale & the Palm Beaches annual ADDY® Awards is the first of a three-tier step in the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition in the country.
