Silver Medal Award

Deadline is January 31st for 2020 Nominations.

The American Advertising Federation’s Silver Medal Award Program was established in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, our club bestows this honor upon outstanding members of the local advertising community. The award serves to enhance the image of advertising by recognizing a locally well-known person for his or her advertising and community involvement.

To date, AAF Roanoke has awarded the Silver Medal to 39 individuals since its inception in 1966.
