How to Enter

How to Enter the American Advertising Awards

Follow these 4 simple steps to enter the AAF-Cedar Valley American Advertising Awards.

1. SUBMIT ENTRY INFO ONLINE

Visit the American Advertising Awards Submission Platform.

For Print and Interactive Entries: A PDF or jpeg suitable for use in the ceremony presentation must be uploaded before you can submit the entry. Audio/Visual Entries: Upload actual project files.

2. ASSEMBLE YOUR ENTRY

Print Entries: Print two copies of the entry form. Affix a label (found on the bottom of the printed entry form) to the back of your work. Only one copy of the entry itself is needed. Note: For campaigns, you must affix a label to each piece and number accordingly (e.g. 1 of 4, 2 of 4, etc.). Insert everything into an envelope, with the entry form visible. Let us know if you need some clear plastic envelopes for your entries and we can drop them off to you.

Audio/Visual and Interactive Entries: No entry form or envelope submission is necessary. However, please provide a printout of your entry with the entry number written on the back for judging and display purposes.

3. PREPARE FOR DROP-OFF

Print the manifest of submitted entries and fill out the payment information or pay online.

4. DELIVER THE GOODS

Bring your signed manifest, entries, and payment (if applicable) to 2724 Quail Hollow Lane, Cedar Falls, IA 50613 by Jan. 14 at 5:30 p.m. (or you can also mail them to that same address).

If you would like to make other arrangements for entry drop-off (or for entry pick-up, if you ask really nicely), or have any questions, please contact us.
