Each year, members of American Advertising Federation – Amarillo (AAF-Amarillo), work hard to organize the American Advertising Awards with a mission to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

The 2024 American Advertising Awards will be on

Thursday, February 22, 2024

at the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum at 6:30 p.m. 


The American Advertising Awards, hosted by AAF-Amarillo, is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants compete to win an ADDY Awards moving them into the second tier, where the local winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards.

A GOLD American Advertising Award is recognition of the highest level of creative excellence and is judged to be superior to all other entries in the category. Entries that are also considered outstanding and worthy of recognition receive a SILVER American Advertising Award. The number of awards given in each category is determined by the judges, based on the relative quality of work in that category.

Entering the American Advertising Awards supports the entire advertising industry, because the AAF and its local and district affiliates use the proceeds to enhance advertising through programs such as public service, internships, advocacy groups, advertising education and consumer awareness.
