About the ADDY Award Competition and the American Advertising Awards (AAA)

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative

competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year in local AAA competitions. The

mission of the AAA competition is to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of

advertising.

The Fort Worth competition is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all

across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards—recognition as the very best in their

markets. At the second tier, local ADDY winners compete against winners from other local clubs

in one of 15 district competitions. District ADDY winners are then forwarded to the third tier,

the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. Entry in the local competition is the first

step toward winning a national ADDY. Judges for this year’s competition were Cooper Olson, a Creative Director / Copywriter with BBDO Los Angeles, Alan Spindle, also Creative Director / Copywriter from Chicago, and Megan Stephens, Managing Principal & Owner of Willoughby Design in Kansas City.

The awards were held at The Masonic Temple on Friday, February 22, 2019, for a gala to celebrate the 2018 American Advertising Awards (AAA) and show.

The 2019 competition had over 400 entries from 33 different agencies, firms and individuals, as well as over 80 student entries from UTA and TCU.
