The American Advertising Federation has a list of the top contributors to the industry, and they call that list the Advertising Hall of Fame. It's kind of a big deal, as are the people in it.
Induction into the Advertising Hall of Fame honors men and women, international and American, who have had exceptionally distinguished and extraordinary careers, have completed their primary careers or have had careers spanning at least 35 years, and who, through and in their professional lives and community involvement, have made outstanding and notable contributions to the profession of advertising and its reputation, have consistently practiced the highest ethical standards, and have contributed substantially to their communities.
AAF is accepting nominations through the end of September to add to that list. If you know someone who's worthy, get that nomination in now!
