Of the professional and student entries the following number of awards were presented: 14 Gold ADDY® Awards and 15 Silver ADDY® Awardsand 5 Student Gold ADDY® Awards and 6 Student Silver ADDY® Awards.

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting more than 40,000 entries every year in local competitions. AAF Roanoke’s Western Virginia American Advertising Awards competition is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, across the country, local entrants vie to win ADDY Awards—recognition as the very best creative work 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. 

Congrats to all local winners at the district level and good luck in national competition! National winners will be announced at ADMERICA in June.
