Celebrating Advertising Excellence

Like the Academy Awards, AAF’s American Advertising Awards celebrates the best of the best in our industry and when you take home an ADDY (just like an OSCAR®) it is something to celebrate.

Our national competition is a three-tier process and it starts here, with our local Houston show. Win a gold ADDY locally and your work moves on to the Tenth District competition. Win there and it’s on to the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.

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

What our members say
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.
