Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the ADDY Awards competition is the advertising industry's most representative competition, attracting over 60,000 entries every year in local ADDY competitions. The mission of the ADDY competition is to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising.
The local ADDY Awards competition is the first of a three-tier, national competition. Concurrently, all across the country, local entrants vie for recognition as the very best in their markets. At the second tier, local winners compete against other winners in one of 15 district competitions. District winners are then forwarded to the third tier, the national ADDY Awards competition.
Freitag has been selected to be a judge for District 15, which covers Southern California and Southern Nevada. He shared that, “The ADDY Awards represent one of the highest honors in our industry. I know that, having won several, it is quite momentous in one's career. I am thrilled to have the opportunity as a judge to be a part of these wonderful accolades."
The winners of this year’s ADDY Awards competition will be announced at the 2012 ADDY Award Show in Austin, Texas on June 5. For more information, please go to: http://www.aaf.org.
