The ADDY Awards is hosted by the American Advertising Federation of North Dakota. The only national design award that’s judged and reviewed by other designers, the ADDYs are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, with more than 60,000 entries across the country each year. Whether copy writing or full-on, multidimensional campaigns, AAF-ND members submit their best work to be judged at the local level and eventually districts and nationals if they continue to win.
