AAF Dallas is excited to announce the kick-off of ADDY Awards season, opening soon! The American Advertising Awards, aka The ADDYS, is the only major awards program that offers recognition for the best work, beginning at the local AAF chapter level, with the potential to advance to and be recognized additionally at the AAF District 10 and AAF National level.
The three-level competition is unique to the American Advertising Awards, as is its inclusion of students. “The student competition really mirrors the professional competition,” according to AAF National President and CEO, James Datri. “Other major competitions have a stripped-down version, or limit the students to a predetermined case. The American Advertising Awards offers students much more opportunity.” Last year the competition saw nearly 6,000 student entries.
AAF Dallas ADDYs theme and the launch of this year’s competition will be unveiled at the Launch Party in Dallas, on November 19th.
Here are a few key dates to remember:
