February 23rd was a big night for the advertising industry on Florida’s Suncoast as entrants from Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier Counties congregated at the Cinébistro Theater in Southgate, Sarasota to attend the 2017 American Advertising Awards.

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 winners are then forwarded to the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.

The program recognizes both student and professional work and fosters both competition and community for those in the field of advertising arts. Entries that won gold move to the next stage of the completion which includes creative from the entire state of Florida and the Caribbean.

ADDY winners can order online: duplicate certificates and trophy upgrades.
