The American Advertising Awards is the industry’s largest competition, receiving more than 40,000 entries each year in local AAA competitions. The American Advertising Awards is sponsored by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) and aims to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising. Judges evaluate entries submitted from across the nation.
To compete in the national competition, an entry must receive gold or silver recognition in its local market to advance to the second tier of the competition. Following each local award show, the winners move to one of 15 district competitions. If an entry wins in its district, the finalists compete for a national award.
