AAF Tampa Bay has opted to have remote online judging due to ongoing concerns about COVID-19. Physical entries are not required to be submitted for local judging. If your entry wins a Gold or Silver ADDY and is forwarded to the District competition, we will contact you to request a physical copy of your entry.

The American Advertising Awards, home of the ADDY® Award, is one
of the industry's largest creative competitions, attracting nearly
35,000 professional and student entries each year through
competitions offered through local AAF clubs. The mission of the
American Advertising Awards is to recognize and reward the
creative spirit of excellence in 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.
