About the American Advertising Awards
Attracting nearly 60,000 entries each year nationwide, the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) American Advertising Awards have become the largest and most comprehensive advertising competition. The American Advertising Awards originated in the 4th District in 1960 and became a three-tiered national competition in 1968.

Sponsored by the AAF, the awards honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. Each year, the competition begins with contests in the nation’s more than 200 AAF member clubs, where entries must be submitted and judged to be eligible for the American Advertising Awards process. Local winners proceed to 15 regional competitions, and those winners advance to the national finals.

Proceeds from the American Advertising Awards program on all levels of competition go back into the industry through the work of the AAF and its members, especially in the areas of advertising education and public service advertising.
