About the American Advertising Awards

The American Advertising Awards, formerly the ADDYs, is the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local AAF Club (Ad Club) 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 Ad Club phase 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 your local Ad Club competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY.

About the AAF Silver Medal Award

The AAF Silver Medal Award, first granted locally in 1962, is part of the American Advertising Federation's Silver Medal program. The award recognizes men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry's standards, creative excellence, and responsibility in areas of social concern. AAF-Houston is pleased to honor Larry D. Kelley, Professor of Advertising at the UH Jack J. Valenti School of Communication, with Houston's 2018 AAF Silver Medal Award.

My only regret is not to be able to complement individual submissions that didn’t take a top prize, because many were worthy of praise. I was blown away by the kindness and generosity the AAF-H volunteers and members showed all the judges throughout the process.
