Once nominations close, a volunteer committee will review all submitted .pdf nominations and submit their initial selections. Candidates with the highest number of votes will be notified by the AAF that they are to be presented before the volunteer Council of Judges in person for selection of the final inductees. The AAF will notify the finalists to be inducted within 24 hours, however the public announcement of the full Class will come in the following weeks.
The volunteer review committee is made up of advertising industry professionals representing multiple aspects of the business, thus this recognition comes from the industry itself. The AAF does not participate in selecting the candidates but provides guidance through each part of the procedure.
