American Advertising Awards – NYC Metro

AAF New York City Metro

Includes Northern New Jersey

The American Advertising Awards, home of the ADDY® Award, is one of the industry’s largest creative competitions, attracting nearly 30,000 professional and student entries each year through competitions offered through local AAF clubs. The mission of the American Advertising Awards is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising.

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local Ad Club phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards – recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local ADDY winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. Entry in your local Ad Club competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY.

The 2021-2022 local competition is now closed.

To make sure that you are contacted for our 2022-2023 competition please email evie@aafpgh.org and ask to be placed on the notification list.  Good luck to all of our winners at the District and National competition!

Due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the American Advertising Awards competition rules, categories and entry procedures for 2021-2022 have been modified to allow for the possibility of remote online judging.

In some categories, entrants are allowed and/or required to upload additional digital examples of an entry. This is intended to provide more appropriate content for the judges, should a virtual judging solution be necessary. For most categories, there has been no change from prior competition years.

Please carefully follow all online submission guidelines provided within the entry system, in order to ensure that your work is properly represented during all three tiers of the American Advertising Awards competition.  Please check all spelling carefully.  All trophies and program book information is pulled from this information.

Please note that online judging is approved for THIS YEAR ONLY.

To enter, new users must register as a student or a professional entrant for the AAF New York City Metro competition. Returning entrants can access the system using last year’s username/password.
