The Inland Northwest American Advertising Awards Competition is the first level of a three-tiered national competition conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF). The American Advertising Awards Competition is open to any individual, company or organization engaged in the creation of advertising. Gold and Silver awards may be awarded in each category of competition at the discretion of the judges. All local winners are forwarded to the District XI American Advertising Awards Competition.
The Awards Show can be likened to the Oscar’s of our local advertising and marketing industry. Our organization focuses on education and career development for those pursuing careers in the arts, marketing and advertising; we support legislative representation on issues concerning our industry and we give back to our community. The American Advertising Awards recognize and award the best annual creative work in our region. The event brings together our community of artists – creative directors, art directors, designers, developers and more.
