The Tucson ADDY Awards®

2018 Duplicate ADDY Award Trophy Order Form

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting a combined total of 80,000 entries in local competitions each year. The mission is to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising.

Conducted annually by AAF, our local ADDY Awards is the first of a three-tiered, national competition. Concurrently, across the country, entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the 2nd tier, winners compete against others in one of 15 District competitions. District winners then forward to the 3rd tier, the National competition. Entry in our local ADDY competition is your 1st step toward winning a National ADDY Award.

Entering the ADDY competition supports our entire industry because AAF and its local and district affiliates use proceeds to enhance advertising through programs including public service, internships, advocacy, education and consumer awareness.

The Student Division is also a three-tiered national competition, sponsored by AAF and Ad 2. Occurring in conjunction with the professional competition, the Student American Advertising Awards recognizes and rewards creative excellence by students. Information on entering can be found in the local Rules and Categories.
