The American Advertising Awards, also known as the ADDYs, is the largest competition in the advertising industry, recognizing creative excellence worldwide.
Entering locally is the first part of a three-tiered competition. Winners in this competition will go on to the District Level (Florida and the Caribbean), and those winners will go on to the National Level and to be recognized at the American Advertising Awards in Palm Springs, CA.
The highlight of our year will be February 22nd! Join the area's finest advertising and marketing players for "ADDY Shack" - An American Advertising Awards on the green! This is AAF Daytona Beach's premier awards ceremony, where we recognize the best of the best among the Daytona Beach area's creative talent.
