SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2016-2017 CINCINNADDYS.
The American Advertising Awards, aka the ADDYs, is a three-tier, national competition that attracts over 40,000 entries annually. But, don't let the name fool you! It's not just about advertising.
The ADDYs are for anyone using creative ideas for the purpose of promotion.
Last year, there was a complete overhaul of the category structure for the ADDYs, so this year, very little has changed. Any type of work that was eligible in years past is still eligible this year.
Prices listed are for entry by January 6, 2017. Professional entries add $30 per submission January 7-11, 2017.
*Not a Member? If you are not currently an AAF Cincinnati or Ad2 Cincinnati member and would like to take advantage of the membership pricing, visit www.aafcincinnati.org or call 513-984-9990 to sign-up today. (With four entries, a membership pays for itself!)
All work must be submitted electronically.

Online/Interactive categories (#37 - #47 and #75)
Film, Video and Sound categories (#48 - #71)
