Advertising Hall of Fame Council of Judges  

The Advertising Hall of Fame Executive Committee and Council of Judges elects the nominees for this prestigious award, which recognizes industry leaders who have been retired from their primary career for at least one full year. The committee also assists the AAF in the programming and sponsorship of this annual event. The Executive Committee and Council of Judges are chosen annually by the president of the American Advertising Federation and chairman of the Advertising Hall of Fame. Judges are selected for their knowledge of the history and personnel of the advertising industry. All nominations are presented to the Council of Judges, who make their selection by secret ballot. The election of candidates is made at the discretion of the Council of Judges, who may choose not to make a selection in any given year.
