2023 American Advertising Awards competition. "It All Started Here."

The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year in local competitions such as here in the Inland Empire. Winners in local competitions may move up to one of 15 District competitions for the chance to advance to the National Finals. In addition to professional competition, there is a concurrent student competition.

With over 200 categories covering all aspects of advertising, the American Advertising Awards Inland Empire competition is the first step towards the illustrious Gold "ADDY". 

This year our event will be hosted at The Mission Inn in Riverside, California.

Gala Date: March 10, 2023

"It All Started Here." For me, The ADDY has a special place for me in my journey. It was the first recognition and confirmation I received as a young design in a field no one really new about. This year's theme is "It All Started Here." We want to celebrate past winners and recent winter and hear their stories of the ADDY changed their life or career path. So let us know.
