Revised Categories for the American Advertising Awards Revealed


This year, the American Advertising Federation (AAF) and the National American Advertising Awards Committee (N3AC) has announced major revisions to the Categories for the American Advertising Awards (AAAwards). Here are the main things you’ll need to know:


  • ALL key categories still remain
  • Many great new categories added
  • Advertising for the Arts & Sciences eliminated
  • Public Service categories redistributed
  • Advertising Industry Self Promotion categories redistributed
  • The 15 categories have been narrowed down to 7

What does this mean? It means communicating this information to your members, past entrants and potential entrants is extremely important! Past entrants will need to know about all these new changes, as they’ve probably grown accustomed to the old categories.

Here are the 2015-2016 Rules & Categories to share with your members and potential entrants:

All AAAwards Resources from National can be found here.

National has also announced that Open Enrollment to setup the software for your club has begun! All District 3 Club Presidents and AAAwards chairs have been notified on how to begin this process. If you have any questions or concerns please email me and I’ll help you with the process!

Here’s to a successful awards year!!!

– Danielle Salley, District 3 AAAwards Co-Chair
