This year’s Baltimore American Advertising Awards event, “Lights. Camera. ADDYs.” will be held March 9 at the historic Senator Theater. According to AAFB: “What better way to celebrate the region’s best creative minds than at one of the city’s best theaters? Join AAFB for an evening of glitz and glamour to showcase Baltimore’s award-winning advertising campaigns.” The event runs from 6:00 – 9:00 pm, followed by an After Party at Zen West, starting at 10:00 pm.
The American Advertising Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting nearly 35,000 entries every year in local AAF competitions. The mission of the American Advertising Awards is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising. Conducted annually by the AAF, the local tier is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, across the country, local entrants vie to receive an ADDY Award© – recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against winners from other local clubs in one of 15 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national stage of the American Advertising Awards. Entry in a local competition is the first step toward winning a national ADDY Award©.
