The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting nearly 35,000 entries every year in local AAF Club competitions.

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local AAF 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 AAF clubs in one of 17 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.
