The program’s mission is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

Conducted annually by the AAF, the local awards ceremony is the first of a three-tier, national competition. All gold and silver winners at the local level automatically advance to one of 15 district competitions. District winners are then advanced to the third tier – the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.
