What are the ADDYs?

AAA Logo (Black)These awards honor the best in local advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. Awarded by the American Advertising Federation, the American Advertising Awards® (formally known as The ADDYs) are the nation’s largest advertising competition — over 60,000 entries. Local entries are judged by a distinguished panel of advertising creatives from outside our market. Local winners proceed to the District and, potentially, to National competitions.

Without shining examples, we cannot fully grasp what advertising excellence really is. That’s why we have an ADDY Awards Banquet.
