The American Advertising Awards

The American Advertising Awards recognize the area’s best of the best - and it’s a pretty great party, too. The winners of these prestigious trophies go on to compete regionally, and the best vie in the national competition. It may have a fancy new name but it’s still the only place you can win an ADDY.


2016 American Advertising Awards Seattle

Coming soon: Something awesome

The creative juices never stop flowing in the Seattle area, and the planning for the next American Advertising Awards never stops, either. It's getting closer to the call for submissions (November 9), and in the interests of keeping you informed/abreast/plugged-in, we are going to have a few optional events that should be a delicious blend of informative and fun.

The Workshops

You think you know the ADDYs? Do you know the best way to submit your work? Maybe you do and maybe you don't, but the categories got an overhaul this year and we want to make sure you're up to speed.

We're going to be having a series of workshops to answer questions and drop some knowledge (about the process, specifically, although maybe there will be conversation about dinosaurs or ninjas or the Wizard of Oz).

In any event, these workshops will be self-contained, rather than a series, so don't block out all three nights as much as you're tempted to do so.

November 19: Workshop #1
December 17: Workshop #2
January 21: Workshop #3

All three of these bad boys will be at Digital Kitchen starting at 5:30.

Rules and Categories Updates

Yes, the times they are a'changin', and the rules and categories for the American Advertising Awards are no different. You can see the updated rules and categories for professionals and students by clicking on those fancy hyperlinks to PDFs. 

Due Dates

Following the November 9 call for entries, you will have almost two and a half months to get organized and get your stuff in.

Specifically, entries are due January 22.

Gallery Night

Every year we have an awards show and everyone gets to see the winners, but there's great work that doesn't win the awards and doesn't get exposure. This year, we plan on showing off all of the submissions in a gallery night. It's all going down on Thursday, February 25.

This is going to be a fantastic event and if you miss it you'll look back one day and cry yourself to sleep over it. Don't do that to your future self.

The Awards Show

Mark your calendars for Thursday, March 24. We'll be celebrating the best in Seattle advertising over the past year with one huge party at the Bell Harbor Conference and Events Center in the International Promenade
