WHAT IS AN AD PRO?

ACKNOWLEDGING DIFFERENCE-MAKERS IN REGIONAL ADVERTISING AND DESIGN

Each of us has a responsibility to make a positive difference in the regional advertising scene — through our work, our involvement in the community, our advocacy of issues important to the advertising, design and marketing industry, and through the people we help and mentor in business.


For nearly 60 years, AAF Spokane has annually identified exceptional regional advertising professionals who meet this criteria by recognizing them as an Advertising Professional (Ad Pro) of the Year.


Recipients are nominated by members of the regional advertising community and are selected after a thorough vetting process by a committee of past Ad Pro recipients and representatives from the AAF Spokane board.


Receiving this award is not easy, and it is a recognized highlight in the careers of all to receive it.

 

Deadline for nominations is January 17, 2020.

AD PRO CRITERIA

The Ad pro nominee should be actively involved in regional advertising, design or marketing and should also participate as an AAF Spokane member. They should be exceptional through their work, involvement, leadership, and dedication. Your nomination should be based on what they are doing recently, rather than acknowledging a lifetime of achievement.


Recipients are nominated by members of the regional advertising community and are selected after a thorough vetting process by a committee of past Ad Pro recipients and representatives from the AAF Spokane board.
