Advertising Agencies Win Big at the Suncoast American Advertising Awards

Posted: Monday, February 25, 2019

Sunday, February 24th 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 2019 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 Award.

More information about the Awards competition can be found at https://www.adfedsuncoast.com/addys/
