The mission of the American Advertising Awards is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in advertising.

The American Advertising Awards is a three-tiered creative competition. Winners receive gold and/or silver ADDY awards. Throughout the competition, Gold winners will automatically move on to the next level of the competition and Silver winners may forward at the entrant’s expense.

The national awards show will take place during ADMERICA, AAF’s national conference, currently scheduled for May 30 – June 2, 2024 in Salt Lake City.
