American Advertising Awards

AAF Madison competition is just the first step of a three-tiered national competition. All across the country, local entrants compete to win recognition as the very best in their markets. Those local winners go on to compete in one of 15 district competitions against the winning entries from the other local clubs in their district. District winners are then forwarded to the third and final tier, the national American Advertising Awards.
