Silver Medal Award
Celebrating a career of service to the advertising industry.
The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award was established nationwide in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding, career-long contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, following creative excellence, and have shown leadership in areas of social concern.
AAF Roanoke’s Silver Medal award serves to recognize outstanding individuals for his or her advertising and community involvement on a local level.

Deadline to submit nominations: Jan. 31
To date, AAF Roanoke has awarded the Silver Medal to more than three dozen individuals since its inception in 1966.
Again, it’s important to note that nominations should show career-long contributions to each set of nomination criteria.
Silver Medal recipients are selected by a panel of judges made up of previous Silver Medal winners. Judges use the following criteria when making their selections. It’s important to note that nominations should show career-long contributions to each set of nomination criteria. A nomination that only includes criteria for how the nominee performed at their job, for example, is likely not going to be considered as nominations that show examples for all of the criteria. Because this nomination is intended to show the breadth and scope of the nominee’s work, please include at least three examples for each criterion on the form.
