2019 AMERICAN ADVERTISING AWARDS – LOCALLY GROWN
Although our creative is seen across the country and oftentimes across the globe, it’s all locally grown right here in Dallas. As exporters of creativity, we plant fresh ideas, nurture them until they bloom and ship them out for the rest of the world to enjoy!
WHAT ARE THE AMERICAN ADVERTISING AWARDS?
The American Advertising Awards are the largest advertising awards program in the United States that celebrates creativity and excellence in advertising. Entry into the American Advertising Awards begins with your local AAF chapter like AAF Dallas. A jury of advertising peers from around the nation will judge the local competition which will determine who will receive the honor of Gold, Silver and Bronze ADDY Awards. Only the best work will then move on to the district then national level for the opportunity to elevate your agency as one of the best in the industry.
