TAFEF Hall of Achievement Awards
Every fall, TAFEF honors Tucson’s notable advertising professionals– past, present, and future–by hosting the annual 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.
Net proceeds from the AAFT Advertising Hall of Achievement event benefits the Tucson Advertising Federation Educational Foundation, a 501(C)3 charitable organization.
