American Advertising Awards

Thank you to our online sponsors and corporate members

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 and 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 10th 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.

Fame Was Claimed!

Thank you to our Entrants, Sponsors, In-Kind Partners and Volunteers who helped make AAF-Houston’s 58th Annual American Advertising Awards and overwhelming success with a significant increase in entries, awards and attendees. Congratulations to all of the ADDY Winners!

What our members say
about AAF-Houston

  • Winning a Gold ADDY at the American Advertising Awards was indeed one of the highest achievements my works 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.
