Silver Medal Nominations Are Now Open!

Silver Medal Award

The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award Program, established in 1959, annually recognizes an outstanding member of the local advertising community. The men and women who are honored with this award make outstanding contributions to advertising and have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern.

This award is not necessarily given every year. During the year when it is given, it is traditionally awarded on the night of the American Advertising Awards Gala for maximum recognition among peers. 

Past winners have managed radio stations and advertising departments. They have been media sales reps, printers, freelancers, magazine and newspaper publishers, agency owners, creative directors, copywriters, media buyers and account executives. They’ve owned market research firms, recording studios and video production companies. The backgrounds and skill sets of previous winners are as diverse as the field of advertising itself. Their common thread, however, is a love of the industry and a proven history of contribution to our local advertising community.


Individuals must meet the criteria as listed below, and found worthy by the selection committee:


•  Only AAF Daytona Beach members in good standing may nominate. Non-members may not submit.

•  Nominees may or may not be a member of the AAF Daytona Beach.

•  Nominees must live or work in either Volusia or Flagler County.

•  Nominations received are only considered for the year submitted.

•  The selection committee may choose to award multiple awards, a single award, or no award.

•  If a winner(s) is chosen, it will be announced at the AAF-Daytona Beach American Advertising Awards Gala in 2018.

When nominating an individual for the Silver Medal, please include your name, company name (to show that you have an active AAF DB membership) email address and phone number in case the committee needs to request further information.
