Call for Silver Medal Award Nominations

The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, AAF member clubs bestow this honor upon outstanding members of the local advertising community. For many local clubs, awarding the AAF Silver Medal is the highlight of their year. It enhances the image of advertising by recognizing a locally well-known person for their advertising and community involvement.


Nominations are due by Friday, February 10, 2017.




Silver Medal recipients are selected by a panel of judges from each local club.

  1. Contribution to His/Her Company
