About the American Advertising Awards

The AAF American Advertising Awards, known as the ADDYs, is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local AAF Chapter competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards competition is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local chapter competition 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 the local chapter competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY Award.

Join us on Thursday, February 20, 2020, for the 57th edition of Houston’s American Advertising Awards, as we recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

What our members say
about AAF-Houston

  • As a sponsor, we had the opportunity to meet some of the brightest students in the area and connect with some great intern/entry-level candidates. The students developed creative and bright ideas that Mattress Firm could use in real life situations. The sponsorship experience was very positive for Mattress Firm. I highly recommend giving it consideration.
