We will accept final entries on Friday, January 7, at Branch-Smith Printing for the local level of the 2011 ADDY Awards.
“Mark your calendars and prepare your entries,” said Keith Powell, president of the American Advertising Federation-Fort Worth chapter. “If last year was any indication, this will surely be a competition to remember.”
The Fort Worth ADDY Awards are the local component of a three-pronged competition, which seeks to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising. Advertising students and professionals are being encouraged to enter their work in various categories, including sales promotion, collateral material, direct marketing, non-traditional advertising, newspaper, radio and television.
Fort Worth ADDY entrants have a chance to win Gold, Silver or Bronze awards in each category. Awards are also given for Best of Show and Special Judges Awards. Entries receiving a Gold ADDY award are automatically entered into the District ADDY Awards competition, where entries are judged alongside Gold winners from District 10 clubs in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas . Entries winning Gold at the district level are automatically entered into the National ADDY Awards competition, the world’s largest advertising competition.
The 2011 Fort Worth ADDY early submission deadline was Friday, December 10, and its final submission deadline is Friday, January 7, 2011. The American Advertising Federation-Fort Worth accepts ADDY entries online at www.addysmackdown.com. Submission costs vary and can be found online.
Fort Worth ADDY winners will be announced at the annual ADDY gala to be held at the Ashton Depot on Saturday, February 26, 2011.
