Invitations are out for the 45th annual American Advertising Federation (AAF) of Chattanooga ADDY Awards presentation ceremonies on February 23 at the Downtown DoubleTree Hotel.
The ADDY Awards, sponsored by AAF Chattanooga, recognize and showcase Chattanooga’s best advertising creative talent from professionals and students. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with cocktails followed by dinner and the presentation of awards.
Over 200 entries were received this year from agencies, businesses, students, and individuals doing business in the Chattanooga market. Of these entries, a three-member nationally recruited judging panel singled out the award winners.
“We are especially excited about this year’s ADDY award show,” said AAF Chattanooga President Shannon York. “The club saw a 50% increase in student ADDY submissions, as well as more diversity overall in professional entry submissions. This is going to be one of the best ADDY events yet.”
Tickets for this gala event are $500 per table or $55 per person for members of the AAF Chattanooga and $600 per table or $65 per person for non-members. Tickets may be purchased in advance by visiting the AAF Chattanooga website. Gold ADDY winners will automatically be submitted to the District 7 ADDY competition, held in Jackson, Ms., in April.
The AAF Chattanooga ADDY Awards Competition is sponsored by the AAF Chattanooga, a member association comprised of advertising and media professionals. Proceeds from the ADDY Awards help support the AAF Chattanooga's educational programs, public service projects, and proactive government relations efforts.
