CELEBRATE YOUR EXCELLENCE AT THE AMERICAN ADVERTISING AWARDS

The annual American Advertising Awards honor every facet of advertising creative: copy and design, print and digital, branding and marketing — and everything in between. Take home a local trophy before moving onto regional and even national recognition for your hard work. Attend the awards ceremony to rub elbows with your peers and get inspired by the great projects they’ve been working on.

TAKE YOUR TURN IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Enter your best work by Jan. 13, 2023, so you can bask in adoration at the awards ceremony.

We’ll hand out trophies Feb. 24, so be sure to join us for a showcase of the Cedar Valley’s amazing advertising talent. (Bring your clients too to celebrate the award-winning work you did for them!)
