Local ADDY Competition on the Horizon

Local ADDY Competition on the Horizon

It’s an exciting time for the Houston advertising industry- the local ADDY Competition awards are just around the corner!  The local competition is the first of three tiers that comprises the national ADDY award. 

The ADDY recognizes and rewards creative excellence in the art of advertising.  It is an annual award conducted by the AAF that recognizes all forms of advertising in many media mediums.  It is the world’s largest and perhaps the most challenging advertising competition; there are more than 60,000 entries annually.   

How can you score an ADDY?  Well, the local ADDY competition is the first step to coveting this prestigious prize.  The local winners will go on to enter the district wide second tier of competition.  District winners will then be forwarded to compete in the national third tier competition and vie to be recognized as the best in their field. 

Full and part-time students can also be part of the magic!  The AAF Student ADDY competition is a wonderful opportunity to add to a resume or portfolio and maybe even earn some cash!  The National Best of Show winner will be awarded a $1000 cash prize.   The Student ADDY is also comprised of three competition tiers that begin at the local level and it occurs conjunctively with the ADDY award. 

Since the AAF uses the proceeds from the competition to support advertising through various programs, everyone’s a winner!  Internships, advocacy groups, advertising education and public service and consumer awareness programs are among the recipients benefiting from the competition’s proceeds.
