What is the American Advertising Federation?
The American Advertising Awards (ADDYs)
The American Advertising Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types, creative by all sizes and entrants of all levels from anywhere in the world.

Student American Advertising Awards

The AAF Student American Advertising Awards Competition is a unique national awards program designed specially for college students. Work entered at your local level can move up to the regional and national judging, just like the work entered by professionals across the country.
Applicants must be enrolled full- or part-time in an accredited U.S. educational institution. Student interns are eligible to enter.
Submit work developed specifically for this competition or from previous projects or student contests (work must be created while the entrant is a student not employed in the advertising industry). National winning entries may receive the following:
  • Finalist certificate—great for résumés and portfolios
  • Prestigious Student American Advertising Award for first-place winners
  • $1,000 cash prize for National Best of Show winner
