All work entered in the American Advertising Award competition must have first appeared in the media between January 1 and December 31, 2022.
With the exceptions of Public Service Advertising and Advertising Industry Self Promotion categories, work entered must have been the result of paid creative services and media placement in the normal course of business (excluding student entries).
Entries must be submitted in the CBSA, DMA or MSA where the work was created (as defined by Arbitron or Nielsen for your local market). In the event that there are entrants located in markets not served by a local American Advertising Award affiliated show, the acceptance, processing, judging, forwarding and fees of those entries will be decided by the governing body of the district in which the entrant is located.
PHYSICAL ENTRIES NO LONGER REQUIRED. If you are submitting a project into a category that is inherently better judged as a physical entry (sales kit, mailer, packaging, etc) pleasetake high quality pictures and/or videos of your printed material to accompany your entry which showcase the quality and construction of your entry.
