Sponsored by the AAF, the American Advertising Awards honor excellence in advertising and cultivate the highest creative standards in the industry. The competition begins at the local level with the 210 AAF member clubs nationwide from which local winners proceed to 14 regional competitions, and those winners proceed to the national finals.

The AAF Club Achievement Awards honor top clubs in eight categories: advertising education, communications, diversity, government relations, club management, membership, programs and public service. Additionally, a "club of the year" is chosen in each division. Learn more.

The AAF'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. Learn more.
