AAF Sacramento is taking the American Advertising Awards (Addys) back to the 20s! To the era that brought jazz, zoot suits, flapper dresses and culture together for a time of extravaganza and change.
We are accepting entries now through January 19, 2018. All work entered in the American Advertising Awards competition must have first appeared between January 1 and December 31, 2017. Entries can either be submitted online or at California Tees. Further information can be found at our AAF Sacramento Addy entry site here.
There are two new categories that have been added to the competition due to their overwhelming popularity at previous competitions: CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) and Virtual Reality. The remaining category entries consist of menu design, logo creation, from mobile response design to video commercial, copy-writing to sound design, branded content, interactive web design, photography, brochure design, cross platform design, display ads, and special event material. There is a category for anything you can think of!
Winners will receive a beautiful statuette that is affectionately known as the “Addy.” Winning a GOLD or a SILVER is a widely-recognizable honor that can be displayed in your office, highlighted in your resume or portfolio when trying to win potential clients, jobs, recruit new employees, and gather investments. The American Advertising Award competitions presents the opportunity to proudly show off your best work or a collaboration of many. You are only being judged against yourself. Scoring is on a scale of 1-100. Pick your best work!
This year, our Club will be hosting another Gallery Night, which is the only opportunity entries can be viewed before the gala awards night. This year’s Gallery Night is being held February 10, 2018, at the Art Institute of California – Sacramento.
The American Advertising Awards will be given at our gala night dinner on March 9, 2018 at the four-star downtown Hyatt Regency Sacramento across from our State Capital.
