Welcome to the AAF Reno American Advertising Awards!
Guidelines for Submissions
Please submit your art online as a PDF as all entries will be judged online this year. Feel free to snap a photo or make a video of your entry if that would benefit the piece.
We are excited to announce 2 new LOCAL only awards this year:
Political: We created a new category just for this specialized form of advertising this year. For us, it's not about the candidates or issues at hand, but rather the creative ways you showcased them. Note this award is local only, which means a win here will not be forwarded to the District Competition, but will give you bragging rights. For political entries to win and be forwarded on, creative must entered into another non-local only category.
Best Work That Never Ran: So much great work was either created as spec or for whatever reason didn't run. We've all had clients change their minds but that doesn't mean the work doesn't warrant recognition! Note this award is local only, which means a win here will not be forwarded to the District Competition, but will give you bragging rights.
We will also be awarding a Judges Choice Mosaic Award. The Mosaic Award best exemplifies the spirit of diversity and inclusion by demonstrating an understanding of and sensitivity to the needs, concerns, and buying practices of multi-cultural audiences.
