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.
The American Advertising Federation conducts the American Advertising Awards, formerly known as the ADDYs. It is the industry's largest competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year.
