Join us 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. 


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 Chapter competitions.


Entry in your local Ad Federation competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY.  Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local Ad Federation phase is the first of a three-tier, national competition:

1. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards - recognition as the very best in their markets. 

AAF-Houston's 2018-2019 ADDY Calendar:  AAF-Houston Awards Call for Entries:  Mid-October 2018.  First/Regular Entry Deadline: December 1, 2018.  Late/Final Entry deadline: January 4, 2019.  The 57th Awards Gala will be held at the Hyatt Regency Houston on February 16, 2019. 

AAF-Houston's Gold and Silver ADDY Winners qualify for the AAF Tenth District Awards competition in Dallas.

2. At the second tier, local ADDY winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District winners receive their awards at the annual AAF Tenth District convention held in April. 

AAF Tenth District Winners qualify for the AAF National Awards competition in Washington, D.C.

3. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. National winners receive their awards at the AAF National Convention held in June.
