AAF Amarillo accepting entries for 2019 American Advertising Awards
AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) —
The Amarillo chapter of the American Advertising Federation is now accepting entries for the 2019 American Advertising Awards.
Entries will be accepted through Jan. 11, 2019 and winners will be recognized at the Feb. 23 awards show.
Each year, AAF Amarillo works to organize the American Advertising Awards, also known as the "ADDYs," to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising. The awards are the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, according to AAF Amarillo.
Professionals and students are both invited to submit entries. Award categories include disciplines such as print, broadcast, digital and more.
Local award shows like the one in Amarillo are the first of a three-tier, national competition. Entrants across the country vie to win ADDY awards in their local competitions, moving them into the second tier to compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions.
District ADDY winners are then moved up to the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.
Those who think they have what it takes to win one of these prestigious awards are asked to submit their work by Jan. 11 by following these steps:
- Visit www.aafamarillo.org/addyawards to review and download the rules and categories. Follow the step-by-step instructions to enter your work.
- Prepare your entries for drop-off on Jan. 10 and 11, from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Center City of Amarillo building, located at 1000 South Polk Street.
- Plan to join AAF Amarillo at the "The Great American Advertising Awards" themed awards show on Feb. 23 at Hugo's on the Square in Canyon. Tickets are now available at www.aafamarillo.org/addyawards.
