Tickets Now Available to the 2012 ADDY Award Gala

Posted By Staff

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation, the local AAF-Inland Empire ADDY® Awards is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of 14 District competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY® Awards competition. Entry in the AAF-Inland Empire ADDY® competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY®.

Selection of the most creative entries is effected by a scoring process in which a panel of judges evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry.

The Student ADDY Awards is also a three-tier national competition, which is sponsored by the AAF and National Ad 2. Occurring in conjunction with the prestigious ADDY Awards, the Student ADDY Awards recognize and reward creative excellence by students.
