TAFEF Hall of Achievement Awards
Every fall, the Tucson Advertising Federation Educational Foundation (TAFEF) honors Tucson’s notable advertising professionals – past, present, and future – by hosting the annual TAFEF Hall of Achievement Awards. Those awards include induction of honorees into the Tucson Advertising Hall of Fame, which recognizes marketing and industry professionals who have led, mentored, and inspired others as part of the AAFT.
Other Hall of Achievement awards include the AAF Silver Medal Award for lifelong contributions to the industry here, the Ad Professional of the Year, for being an outstanding role model to others in the industry, and the Next Generation Award, which recognizes outstanding advertising professionals, age 40 and younger, who have made a significant impact on the industry.
This year's HOA Awards event was held at the Hacienda Del Sol on Sept. 7, 2023. Stay tuned for information on the 2024 HOA applications and events.
