American Advertising Awards

 

Partnership Opportunities

The AAF's American Advertising Awards is the industry’s largest creative competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year. The program recognizes creative excellence and is the advertising industry’s toughest competition in which to win top honors. Its high standards are the result of a three-tiered judging process that begins at the level of the AAF’s 200 grassroots clubs. Winners progress to regional, then national rounds of judging—only then do winners appear on the national stage to accept their awards, at the culmination of the season at the American Advertising Awards Gala. The competition also includes an expansive student division, where the industry’s future creative stars compete for prestigious  ADDY Award honors.

The program offers a wealth of recognition and promotional opportunities for sponsors, including the competition’s national advertising efforts, its online entry portal, local and national awards shows and post-show publicity. As the industry’s largest—and probably best-known—creative competition, its reputation among advertising professionals will complement your brand. The American Advertising Federation invites you to become a sponsor of this highly respected and prestigious awards program.
