The American Advertising Federation Dallas Chapter (AAF Dallas) is now accepting entries for its 54th Annual AAF Dallas American Advertising Awards, more commonly referred to as The ADDYs. The organization has also announced its theme for this year’s event as “Fantasy Advertising.” The ADDYs Gala will be held Feb.18, 2016 at Gas Monkey Live.
Taking a cue from the increasingly popular Fantasy Football movement, each entry will automatically be entered into the AAF Dallas “draft” Jan. 21. Each agency participating in the awards will have the opportunity to create a team and scout players creative directors, art directors, copy writers and flex players – on the draft board. Results will stream live at the award show in February.
The American Advertising Awards represent the true spirit of creative excellence by recognizing all forms of advertising from media of all types, creative by all sizes and entrants of all levels from anywhere in the world. Selection of the most creative entry in each category is conducted through a scoring process in which a panel of judges evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry.
