American Advertising Awards

The entries have been collected, the portal has been closed, and as even as we speak our panel of esteemed judges is tabulating their results in a secret, secure location.

Now all that remains is to determine whether all the strategy, talent, hard work, late nights, blood, sweat and tears will yield the ultimate award. Who will take home an ADDY?

about AAF-Houston

  • Winning a Gold ADDY at the American Advertising Awards was indeed one of the highest achievements my work has received. Knowing that it competed against some incredible photography locally, at the district level and then nationally, made it even more special. I was proud to help bring attention to Houston’s diverse creative community.
