The local ADDY program is the first step in the American Advertising Federation (AAF) annual ADDY competition in which 60,000 advertising entries are submitted in hopes of winning a coveted ADDY. On the local level, more than 120 professional and student entries from Tri-State AMP members are judged each year and nearly 40 ADDY Awards are presented at the annual awards banquet.
The 2013 ADDY Awards will be held Friday, March 1 at The Plaza by Ray’s in Cape Girardeau. Entries are due by 4 pm on January 11, 2013.
Winners of the ADDY Awards are eligible to compete in the second level of the three-tiered ADDY Awards Competition, the District 9 ADDY Awards conducted in March. The District 9 winners are then eligible for the ultimate competition, the national ADDY, presented in June every year by the American Advertising Federation. As a three-tiered national competition with 60,000 entrants overall, the national ADDY Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, recognizing creative excellence and the very best advertising worldwide.Enter ADDY Competition
